The gemsbok is native to arid areas of Southern Africa such as the Kalahari Desert. Both male and female gemsbok boast a spectacular set of horns. The male's horns tend to be thicker at the base, while the females have slightly longer and thinner horns.
The gemsbok is depicted on Namibia's coat of arms.
