The gemsbok karyotype has 2n = 56 chromosomes, with two Robertsonian translocations compared to cattle [].Gemsbok populations have high genetic diversity [], consistent with other African bovids [9, 10].Here, we report a chromosome-scale gemsbok genome sequence that will be useful for elucidating the unique adaptations that allow gemsbok to live in arid climates. Overview. A long held desire to visit the Kalahari was the real catalyst for this trip. Access through South Africa is the easiest way to get there, so we decided to fly into Cape Town and bird the route north to the Kalahari Gemsbok National Park, or the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park, as it is now known.

The Gemsbok that we offer on our Texas Hill Country Ranches are Large Bulls, and sometimes cows, which typically will vary from 35 to inch plus range. Occasionally, we will have access to some old breeder Gemsbok that will go over 40", so if interested inquire about those "World Record Class Gemsbok" as well.   Scoring Trophy Gemsbok. The gold standard for a very nice trophy gemsbok is one with 40 inch horns. Both bulls and cows have horns and are hunted, but a bull gemsbok at 40 inches is much more of a trophy than a female of the same length. The Safari Club International (SCI) scoring method of gemsbok favors lengths over mass.

The white forelegs have a black ring above the knee and a black patch below. The black tail tassel reaches to the hocks. The oryx's ringed horns are up to 30 inches long, making them formidable weapons. The female's horns are often longer and thinner than the male's. Size. Gemsbok stand approximately m at the shoulder.
