Antilocapridae is a family within the order Artiodactyla which is currently represented by only one species of pronghorn, Antilocapra americana, distributed from southern Canada to northern Mexico (O'Gara, 1978).
Interestingly, the pronghorn is the only remaining member left of the Antilocapridae family, with a dozen similar species existing at one point in North America during the Pleistocene period.
