Pronghorns are colloquially called antelope, but they're not in that family. Antelope have antlers and pronghorns have, well, horns. Their closest living relatives are giraffes.

Didn't know that. Apparently pronghorn are more closely related to giraffe than to antelope. Learn something new everyday.

Giraffes. Well, that explains the running skills.

Wow!  I checked that.

 "Antelopes are not a cladistic or taxonomically defined group. The term is used to describe all members of the family Bovidae that do not fall under the category of sheep, cattle, or goats".  That includes Giraffes.  I would not have guessed they weren't a sort of deer.

I'm not sure about much of anything, but I heard that humans can just keep going and going and going, until the prey drops. As long as they don't lose it, they can chase it down slowly, especially if they've already wounded it.
