    Markhors are a large species of wild goat found in Afghanistan and Pakistan, and other neighboring areas. They are classified as an endangered species. Except in Pakistan, they are still hunted for meat, and their horns are used for medicinal purposes. They have been introduced into Texas on private reserves, but are not yet living in the wild there. There are less than 2500 in the wild worldwide. by OZinOH

    Markhor - species of wild goat that lives in the north-east of Afghanistan and Pakistan. They were fewer than 2,500 individuals. Markhor is the national symbol of Pakistan.

Markhor is a large species of wild goat that is found in northeastern Afghanistan, northern Pakistan, some parts of India, southern Tajikistan and southern Uzbekistan. The name means “snake eater", which is sometimes interpreted to either represent the species' ability to kill snakes, or as a reference to its corkscrewing horns, which are somewhat reminiscent of coiling snakes. It is the national animal of Pakistan.
