QUESTION:

Does the length of the gemsbok´s horns have any significance?

 

ANSWER:

Yes, the sex of an adult gemsbok can be told from the long and slender horns of a cow that form a narrow V as opposed to the short and more robust horns of an adult bull that form a wide V.

 

answer by: Prof J du P Bothma
