The buckhorn is a large, tough, heavy-looking mammal that inhabits most of central Australia.
It is native to Australia and New Zealand.
It produces a nut-like nut that is used as a feed for cattle.
It has a long and narrow body and large ears.
The nut is usually eaten raw and then dried.
It can grow up to 2.5 metres tall.
It eats a variety of animals, including rabbits, rodents and deer.
It grazes on the ground or under trees.
It’s a valuable source of income for the buck herders in Queensland, New South Wales and Victoria.
In 2013, the buck horn industry lost nearly $1.8 million due to the impact of a drought.
The industry has responded by opening new sites and mining permits.
