Sindh Ibex

Capra aegagrus blythi


West of the Indus River in southern Pakistan and the adjoining Chagai Hills of southern Afghanistan. Boundaries with the typical bezoar to the west are unclear. Possibly a small portion in extreme southeastern Iran.


Weight 100-200 pounds. Differs from the typical bezoar by being paler in color and somewhat smaller in size, and in having horns that are closer together at the tips and either without knobs on the front keel or with only a few small ones.


The Sindh ibex lives in arid cliffs and mountains, from near sea level to 11,000 feet. Main requirement seems to be precipitous crags where it is safe from disturbance.
