The Indian antelope, or Antilope bezoartica, or Antilopa Cervicapra; is noted for its beauty and swiftness. It has long, spiral, divergent horns.

It is about two and a half feet in height, of a reddish-brown color, with a white stomach and feet, has long naked ears, and a short, erect tail. The horns are black, about twelve inches long, and bent like a lyre.

The Cervicaprine inhabits Barbary, Egypt, Arabia, and Syria, and is about half the size of a fallow deer. It lives in large flocks, is easily tamed, although it is naturally very timid; and its flesh is considered to be excellent food.
