The Himalayan tahr (Hemitragus jemlahicus) is a large, reddish brown to dark brown wild goat that lives on the mountain slopes and forests of the Himalayas in southern Tibet, northern India, and Nepal. The Tahr lives in herds and frequents steep, often wooded mountainsides. It has astonishing skills of covering rock covered terrains using its keratin reinforced hooves and short legs. Males are generally twice the size of females, and both have hefty coats of fur which they can shed if the weather warms up. There are two other tahrs – Nilgiri and Arabian.
