Arabian Oryx prefer to range in gravel desserts or hard sand, where their speed and endurance will protect them from most predators. They used to be found in the hard sand areas of the flats between the softer dunes and ridger.

Arabian Oryx's diet consist mainly of grasses, but they eat a large variety of vegetation, including buds, herbs, fruit, tubers, and roots. Herds of Arabian Oryx follow infrequent rains to eat new plants that grow afterwards. They are able to detect rainfall from a distance and follow in the direction of fresh plant growth. The number of individuals in herd can vary greatly, can be up to 100 individual have been reported, but the average is 10 or fewer individuals. When the Oryx is not wandering its habitat or eating, it digs shallow depressions in soft ground under shrubs or trees for resting.

The Average lifespan of an Arabian Oryx is over 20 years.

Trivia

  • In 1986, the Arabian Oryx is classified as endangered on the IUCN Red List, and in 2011, it was the first animal to revert to vulnerable status after previously being listed as extinct in the wild. The last wild Arabian Oryx was shot in 1972. Since that time, intense conservation and re-introduction efforts have increased the species's wild population to 1,000 individuals.
