Addax
The addax fits within the classification of kosher and clean animals (see Leviticus 11:3 and Deuteronomy 14:5 ). It is said to both chew cud and to possess cloven hooves. The addax is a rare, spiral horned member of the bovid family.

Diet: Herbivorous

Habitat: Sahara

Antelope
The Hebrew term yachmur of Deuteronomy 14:5 is considered by some translators to be a reference to an antelope. Some scholars dispute this and suggest instead that the term should be viewed as a reference to either a white goat, a roe deer, a buffalo or fallow deer. The text states that the above animal is to be regarded as kosher and clean.

The antelope is a fast running member of the bovid family. It is sometimes referred to as a 'goat deer'.

Diet: Herbivorous

Habitat: Plains in Africa.
