Originally native only to the Indian subcontinent, the Blackbuck is known for its long, ringed horns that look like tightly wound corkscrews. This particular Blackbuck is, of course, no exception. In addition to its trademark horns, this specimen has fantastic coloring: while both its underbelly and the fur around its eyes are snow white, the rest of its body is a deep chocolate brown. This blackbuck is posed looking slightly to its right with its ears up and alert. The tips of the horns are slightly rounded - most likely from fighting. As such, we have given this blackbuck trophy our quality rating of Nice.
