ADDAX

SCIENTIFIC NAME:  Addax nasomaculatus

HABITAT:  Sahara desert, Africa

CONSERVATION STATUS:  Critically Endangered

FUN FACT:   The addax is well adapted to life in the desert, even in the most arid parts, where there is virtually no vegetation.  It survives on sparse growth that occurs in the desert after the rare meager rain falls.  Can survive for weeks or months without drinking water.
