Tuseven was a female East African oryx (Oryx beisa), a type of antelope. She was born at the Birmingham Zoo in 1962 to Aphrodite and her mate, Apollo.

Kenneth Hunt of Vestavia Hills won a naming contest sponsored by the Birmingham Post-Herald. He suggested the name because her birth increased the captive population of her species in the United States to 27.
