This animal would be extinct if not for the use of game ranches.  Coming from China, they are named for a Catholic priest named Father David (in French Pere David) who built a high fence and put a few of them inside.  Those deer became the last of the species.

The animals are brownish-gray colored and males weigh about 400 lbs.  Their horns have multiple points and their brow tynes are very long.

The Nubin Ibex is from Sudan, is light brown with a dark dorsal stripe and is a fairly small animal weighing about 100 lbs.  The horns of the Nubian Ibex have pronounced knots on the forward edge of the horns and grow up, back, and then hook back in.  He is similar to the Siberian Ibex but much smaller.  Unlike the Siberian though, the Nubian is a hardy animal and does well in Texas.
