Oryx were introduced into southern New Mexico's White Sands Missile Range (Trinity site) in 1969 as exotic big game. Coyotes and mountain lions posed no threat and the oryx thrived, tipping the balance of the White Sands National Monument's ecosystem. The stylized image of stark black horns against white gypsum sands is one only conjured up in dreams.
