It has never been domesticated. It became extinct in the wild in the late 1960s but in the early 2000s it has been reintroduced from captive-bred Przewalski Horses to two nature reserves in Mongolia and to China. It remains endangered.

They live in herds of females with a lead stallion and separate bachelor herds of males. Przewalski was a Russian explorer. Other "wild" horses such as the herds of Mustang in America are feral, descended from domestic stock.
