Transcript of The six-horned pronghrorn

The six-horned pronghrorn
When the pronghorns were alive 20 million years ago they lived in Bone valley which was in the middle of Pilocene,, when the seas were 35 meters above regular sea levels and that was near Withlacooche. Since the water was rising even higher it started causing the Pronghorns to die. In one or two ways they are related to cows, sheeps, goats, deers, giraffas, and a couple of more animals but the way that their related is just a bit of mystery for us hum,ans to find out.
Unusual facts
Each ear of the Pronghorn has three horns which are tapered towards the top.
Their not very large animals about 3 feet tall at the shoulder and 4 and half feet long.
Their fur is like redish brown but the stomach is white and also has white stripes down its neck.
Have long slim legs which makes them be able to run a lot faster then other animals .
When they get starled their white hair on their rumps raises up which you can see from miles away.
They always travel in herds no matter what to stay safe and be with their family.
When spotted by a predator they'll run as fast as they can which is about 60 miles per hour to stay alive.
They wiegh between 90- 150 pounds but females way less then the male specie.
They were artiodactyla which means they were wild animals
Appearance & Behavior
The Pronghorns timeline & Relatives
Pronghorn are those type of animals that like their own space like open plains, fields, grasslands, desserts, and basin. Once its between summer and winter the pronghorn decide its time to migrate to place that has feeding ground so they will be to survive during the cold weather. They mostly lived in this valley called Bone. Bone valley is located in North America. They extended from Southern Canda to Northern Mexico leaving trails behind like their personal bussiness. Wherever their habitat was going to be at it at least had to have green plants for them to survive because they are herbivores.
Ideas for play
Pronghorns would browse for and chew green plants
Whenever one of the Pronghorns would sense any kind of danger they would warn the rest so they'll be able to run as fast as they could to get away from the predator.
The Pronghorns didnt have to go look for water because all the water that they needed was located in the plants that they ate.
They had teeth that were narraow as dime and also they are realated to an animal that was unusaul because they live on land and one of their relatives lives in water which the whale. The female pronghorns would breed in late summer or fall depending on their location.
Pronghorn fossils have been found on the site of phosphate mine pits and washer plants. Their teeth, horn cores and legs have also been found in Bone valley region in Central Florida. Their horns are used to protect themselves from predators.
