Gorgeous Scimitar-horned Oryx taken at the Morani River Ranch near Uvalde, TX with necessary paperwork. Monster horns measuring 41" on the left and 40" on the right! Posed looking back over its left shoulder for an awesome display of its scimitar-shaped horns. Coloring is exquisite in shades of rust, red, brown, black, and white with fantastic contrast and depth. The taxidermy artistry and detailing are top-notch. Due to a few thin hide spots on the bridge of this mount's nose (shown in photos), we have given this mount our Quality Rating of Nice. However, these spots are not visible when viewed normally. Truly a stunning centerpiece for a great room, office, or as the heart of a collection of exotic taxidermy mounts!
