4 Saiga Antelope

The Saiga Antelope is recognized by its bulbous nose that hangs over its mouth. The species is under the critically endangered list because of excess hunting and loss of habitat. In summer, the Saiga’s coat looks sparse and cinnamon colored in summer but in winter it becomes thick and white. The main reason for the Saiga’s population dwindling is because of extensive hunting for its horn used for making Chinese medicine.
