The addax (Addax nasomaculatus) is a critically endangered antelope adapted to live in extreme desert conditions. It has long impressive horns that can potentially serve as a weapon because they are sharp. Does addax use its horn to fend off predators?

I read somewhere that addax is not a fast animal so trying to escape by running does not seem like a good option for defense.
