Gemsbok (Oryx Gazella)

You will encounter many Gemsbok (Oryx Gazellas), powerful-looking antelopes featuring a well-defined patterns on head and body. It can survive a long time without any water, so it's perfectly suited for the Etosha National Park. Its horns are very effective weapons, but they are also used to shake down fruit from trees. The oryx is part of the Namibian national crest, and yes, they are quite tasty as well. :-) But seriously, if you ever have the chance to eat some Oryx, just go ahead. It's fantastic.
