Gorals look like stocky antelopes or goats with short, backward-curved horns, but are not directly related to either group. They have several differences from both groups. There are 4 species of Gorals in different regions of Himalayan South and Southeast Asia.

Shown is the Central Chinese Goral (N. c. arnouxianus), a subspecies of the Long-tailed Goral native to Amur regions of Russia, China and the Koreas. (It looks similar to the Chinese Goral, N. griseus, native not only to China but also to other mountainous regions of IndoChina and even India.) Like other Gorals it favours inaccessible rocky mountainsides.
