Tibetan antelopes are like wild goats and sheep
The chiru of high Tibet are Tibetan antelopes that relate closely to wild goats and sheep and that reside on cold, flat, open, under-vegetated alpine and steppe habitats 10,660 to 18,040 feet (3,249.17 to 5,498.59 meters) above sea level in:
• Ladakh, India;
• southern Xinjiang and western Qinghai, China; and
They busy themselves:
• consuming forbs, grasses, and sedges;
• fleeing lynxes, red foxes, snow leopards, and wolves; and
• mating in November and December.
They converge in:
• harems of 4 to 12 females per male;
• herds of 20 within seasonal pastures and 100+ for summer to winter nomadism and vice versa; and
• hordes of females round-tripping 190 miles (305.78 kilometers) to deliver one calf each in June or July.
