This was an exciting find when we were in Taiwan.  Serows are a genus of ungulates which are endemic to Asia, the Taiwan Serow being endemic to Taiwan.  Closely related to other goat like animals, the gorals.  It was the first time I had seen any species of Serow.   We spotted it at night time from a bit farther away and it walked in our direction in the dark, making it possible for me to take this portrait.

A species and family I've never heard of before! Looks like he's been in a scrape or 2 with that torn ear. Lovely portrait, nice work with the flash.
