Photo Safari at The Wilds – Sichuan Takin

The takin, also called cattle chamois or gnu goat, is a goat-antelope found in the eastern Himalayas. The four subspecies are: B. t. taxicolor, the Mishmi takin; B. t. bedfordi, the Shaanxi takin or golden takin; B. t. Wikipedia

Whatever you call them, they mostly hid among the trees and bushes with only one or two being out in the open.  Here’s something interesting – these creatures hang out in the same bamboo forest areas as their more famous neighbors, the giant pandas.
