pronghorn

Pronghorn fawns are very, very quiet

February 19, 2014 - 2:11pm -- idfg-bstuder

A recent article from NPR highlights the native camoflouge of Idaho's pronghorn. Being very quite is an amazing defense mechanism for these animals until they are old enough to run from predators.

Read the story and view some of the other camoflouge pronghorn have in photos at NPR.

 

While we're talking about pronghorn fawns, a recent video clip from our 75th Celebration shows historical footage of Idaho Fish and Game biologists "dip netting" (yes, like you'd use for a fish) pronghorn fawns as a management tool. Please note, we do not recommend standing on the tops of cars while driving offroad, as they do in the video below.
