Caption: The Beisa Oryx (Oryx beisa) gather in herds of two dozen or more and roam the open plains of East Africa feeding on grasses and migrating between watering holes to drink. Both male and female have horns which are used for defense against large predators. During the dry season, Oryx are adapted to survive without drinking water by extracting moisture from their food and reducing water loss by decreasing their respiratory rate. World Wildlife Zoo, Phoenix, Arizona.
