The relationship between the domesticated sheep, Ovis aries, and the pronghorn antelope, Antilocapra americana americana, is close enough to validate a comparative gastrointestinal tract analysis (Table 1). This analysis is intended to compare and describe the various parts of the gastrointestinal tract of each species in the order of their occurrence from the esophagus through the rectum. . . . An attempt was made in this study to compare the gastrointestinal tract of the sheep and the pronghorn antelope, using the sheep as a guide because of its similarity and availability. The purpose of this study is not to prove any anatomical differences, but to compare the gastrointestinal tract of the two species. This comparison is to show correlation between species, with emphasis on pronghorn antelope because of lack of information on wild game ruminants.
