Blackbuck originates from Asia. Mature males tan or brown to black with sharply contrasting white eye rings, ears, chin, rump, chest, and belly. Dark areas lighten in summer on many less-dominant bucks. Females and immatures tan with same white markings. Newborns brown with light markings. Males grow ringed, cork-screw horns diverging upward in a tall V. Adult minimum horn length 13" measured straight from base to tip. Few horns exceed 23", however in native habitat they could reach 28-29" up to 30". Males will weight 43-125 lbs. up to 144 (typically 83). Females will weight 42-73 lbs (typically 58).
Food habits: Grazer, but take some browse. Prefer short to mid-length grasses, especially when tender. Switch readily to dependence on browse if grasses decline in quality or quantity (as during summer in southwestern US).
Habitat: Does best on large stretches of dry grassland in flat to gently rolling country. Smaller openings will usually do, especially if many interconnect. Fail to flourish in very small, isolated openings. 5-22 acres is best, with at least brush or other shelter against cold. Will get most of their water needs from plants. Do best in dry, warm climates. Little body insulation, so losses are heavy if faced with snow or ice.
Somewhat flighty. Orphan fawns show little will to live.
Breed all year but more active in Spring and Fall.
Births all year but fewer in winter. Gestation is 5 months with usually 1 baby per birth, but females will birth twice a year.
Males reach sexual maturity at 18 months, female at as early as 8 months.
Fencing: Generally respect 4 1/2' but can jump 6' if pushed.
