Calm down. Oryxes fight all the time.

Fuli, The Search for Utamu

Oryxes are antelopes that appear in The Lion Guard universe. They live in the Pride Lands


In the Real World

Beisa oryxes have light brown fur with a pair of long, straight horns. They have areas of white and black fur on their faces, legs, and underbellies.

In The Lion Guard

Oryxes in The Lion Guard greatly resemble real oryxes, though their coats appear to be darker.


In the Real World

Oryxes are a genus consisting of four different antelope species, three of which are native to Africa. They inhabit mostly grassland or desert areas and able to raise their body temperatures to conserve water.

In The Lion Guard

According to Fuli, oryxes fight all the time.
