The Roan is a antelope with a horse-like build (they even smell similar to horses), and one of the largest species of African antelope. Similar in appearance to Sable, the two species are sometimes confused although Sable are darker. These unique animals have long, elf-like ears tipped with tassels of black hair. Roan are wary, have good eyesight and sense of smell. They are very aggressive and remarkably tough.
