"Fast-moving antelope."—In-game description
What distinguishes the Pronghorn over other similar huntables, is its speed; 3.0 when walking, and over 5.0 when running away from Villagers' gunfire. Hunting them can result in Pronghorn herds scattering around quickly when shot.
A pronghorn in real life is native only to Colorado, and spread into the plain areas in very few numbers. It favors desert areas.
"Scientific Name: Antilocapra americana
Approx. Size: 3 ft. at the shoulder, 100 lb.
Diet: Shrubs, grasses, sagebrush
The pronghorn is sometimes called an antelope, but is not an actual antelope, though closely related. Pronghorns are small and lean and are fast runners - the fastest North American mammal, with top speeds of 60 mph. They have light brown coats, white bellies, white throat stripes, and a white patch on their rumps that they use to signal danger to the others in their small herds. The horns that give them their name have a bony core surrounded by a hairlike sheath that is shed annually.
Their chief predators are wolves, coyotes, and humans. Their calves are sometimes carried off by golden eagles."
