  Nilgai

 

A herd of male and female Nilgai spotted in the steppe of Rajasthan, India. The males are somewhat similar in appearance to the Mainland Serow (fig.), with an erectile mane on the back of the neck and short conical horns, but additionally they have a goat-like beard on the midsection of the throat. Both sexes have a white throat bib and white spots on the cheeks, as well as a narrow white stripe along the underside of the body and white colouring on the lower legs and near the lips.
