Grand Teton National Park Off The Beaten Path: 24 reviews and 41 photos
The pronghorn is often mistaken for an antelope but is in its own family. Though the second fastest mammal in the world after the cheetah, the sure footed and sturdily built speedster actually sustains fast speeds for longer lengths of time. Their horns are particularly interesting with both males and females having the forward “pronged” racks. Males use them fiercely to guard their female harems during the mating season.
Pronghorns can be seen in the shrubland in the eastern park of Grand Teton National Park. We saw this heard just off Route 191.
It was great to see pronghorns again. We had seen them a few times in Utah but once out of their range, they of course, disappeared. Seeing them was bittersweet. It sort of meant we were heading back home and the the six-month odyssey was coming to an end.
