SALINA, Kan. (AP) -- The Rolling Hills Wildlife Adventure park near Salina has a new addition.

The Salina Journal reports (http://bit.ly/KRFJ9E ) that the baby addax (AD'-aks) was born Monday.

Zoo curator Peter Burvenich said the addax is also known as the screwhorn antelope. It's a critically endangered species of Saharan desert antelope that has a pale coat and long, twisted horns.

Burvenich said the species has been hunted close to extinction, but it's slowly coming back. Mother and baby addax are on view to the public in the addax exhibit at the zoo west of Salina.
