Capra falconeri heptneri

Also called Tajik markhor, Russian markhor or Heptner markhor.

DESCRIPTION The horns are relatively straight and in the form of a bold, tight corkscrew. This subspecies is the one commonly seen in zoos and game parks worldwide.

DISTRIBUTION Formerly in most of the mountains along the north banks of the upper Amu Darya and Pyandzh rivers from Turkmenistan to Tajikistan. Now reduced to scattered populations in the Kugitang range of extreme eastern Turkmenistan and southeastern Uzbekistan, in the area between the Pyandzh and Vakhsh rivers in southwestern Tajikistan, and in the northwestern part of the Darwaz Peninsula of northeastern Afghanistan near the Tajik border.

TAXONOMIC NOTES Some authorities have recognized two subspecies: ognevi from Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan, and heptneri from Tajikistan and adjacent parts of Afghanistan. They are combined here, with heptneri Zalkin, 1945 having priority.

STATUS Listed as endangered by the IUCN and on Appendix I of CITES.
