This is a great looking Addax mount with good horn size and detailed workmanship earning an “Excellent” rating. Also known as “Screw-horn antelope” or “White Antelope”, they are native to the Sahara desert of Africa. Addax are recognized for their light (almost white) coloring over their body(hence the name “White Antelope”) with the exception of the dark patch on their forehead. They have a spectacular horn that is ringed and has a twist going back over their head and shoulders. Both the male and female of the species have horns.
Here we have a nice example with horns measuring 25 4/8″ and 24 1/8″ (inches) in length. Note that the right horn is missing the tip which partially accounts for it being a little shorter than it’s counterpart on the left. Bases measure 5 3/8″ each.
Overall mount size is 44″ high/tall x 18″ wide x 25″ deep. Mount hangs on a single, well secured fastener. This White Antelope has been graded as Excellent and missed a higher score because of a bare spot on the chest where it had worn the hair off. (see attached photos in detail on his left side) This is still a great looking mount with head up and facing toward the left into the room.
“Montana Only” item… Addax are a species that is strictly regulated, so I can not ship this item out of state. Purchaser must be a Montana citizen. No exceptions.
