A graceful antelope of the open plains, they may be seen in small herds. The bucks are black with a white eye ring and undersides, and their spiralled horns may reach twenty inches. The young males and hornless females are brown. There is a small population of blackbuck in open country near cultivated land to the southeast of the park. There have been attempts to introduce blackbuck, mainly zoo animals, into the park at Baghora Phanta, a large meadow.
