      Quite the creature, and I’m amazed how close you got. I would have thought it was called the goat-bear too, haha. I believe its the Japanese serow (Capricornis crispus or Naemorhedus crispus), also known as the Nihon kamoshika. Do I get an e-high five!?!

    Wow, I would so want to pet him (or her? how do you know?) Can you domesticate one and bring him or her home for me, please?
