Blackbucks are a species of antelope native to India but introduced to the United States including various ranches in Texas! The appearance vary greatly from males to females. Adult males have a dark brown almost black coat with white underneath while the top coat of females varies from a light brown to tan color. They feed mostly on open prairie grass, leaves, and shrubs and are considered one of the fastest animals in the world!
The Chital Deer, most commonly known as Axis Deer, are native to India but were introduced to Texas in 1932. They have striking reddish brown coats with white spots along their sides, a black dorsal stripe and a small white area or “bib” under their chin. Adult males can grow from 29 to 39 inches and can weight anywhere between 145 to 250 pounds. They are herbivores and feed primarily on grasslands. Because they produce lean meat with 0.2% fat or less, their meat is legally considered fat free!
