Mishmi takin are one the largest of the goat-antelopes and are closely related to sheep.
The Mishmi takin is found in the southeast of Tibet, northwestern Yunnan and two areas of China.
There are less than 3,500 Mishmi takin remaining in the wild, mostly in Tibet. In Myanmar populations are decreasing because of hunting for bushmeat and the traditional medicine trade. Habitat destruction caused by deforestation is also a serious threat.
