pronk definition

Date : 26-02-2023

Pronk is a term used in biology and refers to a type of behavior exhibited by certain animals, particularly antelopes, gazelles, and other members of the Bovidae family. Pronking involves jumping or leaping into the air with all four feet off the ground simultaneously. It is often performed as a form of play or as a display of vitality and energy.

The term "pronk" is derived from the Afrikaans word "pronk" which means "show off" or "strut." In addition to antelopes and gazelles, other animals such as rabbits, meerkats, and some birds have been observed to exhibit pronking behavior.
