HABITAT

Markhors survive on the steep arid hillsides of the Himalayan Mountains in Central Asia, including the countries of Tajikistan and Afghanistan. In the summer months, they can be found as high as 13,000 feet above sea level, foraging on grasses; in the winter, they avoid deep snow.

 The name “Markhor” is a combination of two Persian and Pashto words: “Mar” means snake and “khor” means eater.
