A newborn pronghorn (Antilocapra americana) might weigh 2-4 kg, most commonly 3 kg. In their first 21-26 days, a fawn spends time hiding in vegetation. Fawns interact with their mothers for 20-25 minutes a day and this continues even when the fawn joins a nursery. The females nurse, groom, and lead their young to food and water as well as keep predators away from them. Males are weaned 2-3 weeks earlier than females. The longevity is typically up to 10 years, rarely 15 years.
