Location: Laramie, Wyoming

These are Pronghorm Antelopes,
They live in the west and eat sage and grass.
They stay warm in cold weather with air-filled hair,
And they can't jump but can run really fast.

Note: Make sure you read the article linked below, it has a fascinating section on their anatomy that describes why they can run but not jump.
