Tadjik Markhor

The beautiful and special corkscrew shaped horns of the Tadjik Markhor (Capra falconeri) is the reason for its decline. The horns are popular among trophy hunters. I guess it’s the stupidity of mankind, the need to own what’s beautiful and unique.

This goat lives in mountain areas and is a fantastic climber. The females live in groups but the males are solitary and only meet to mate. Violent fight take place between the males and the winner then get to mate with several females.

Only shot worth taking, is with the camera, ha de Gött!
