Wild goats are distributed in many parts of the world. They are adapted to rugged and rocky terrains and are found in bands comprising 5-20 animals. The notable wild goats are the Siberian ibex (Capra ibex sibirica), the Spanish ibex (c. pyrenaica), the Himalayan tahr (Hemitragus jemlahicus), the Nilgiri tahr (H. hylocrius) and the markhor (c. falconeri). The Himalayan tahr is usually reddish brown to dark brown in colour. It has long robust limbs and narrow erect ears. The neck has a full mane. Horns are curved backwards. The Himalayan tahr is ranged from Kashmir to Sikkim. They are forest loving animals and prefer to live in herds on steep rocky slopes covered with oak and other trees. Mating occurs in winter and a single young is born during summer.
