DESCRIPTION Shoulder height about 27 inches (69 cm).

The horns (males only) are relatively shorter but stouter than in the Persian goitered gazelle, averaging about 11-12 inches (28-30 cm), although larger ones were recorded in the early 1900s, the best being 17-1/4 inches (43.8 cm) (Rowland Ward, 1902). The number of horn rings is normally about 14, seldom exceeding 16. The ears are longer than in the Persian race, and the white area of the rump is larger, extending upward on each side of the root of the tail. General color is a dark fawn, with less of a reddish hue than in the Persian race. The facial markings are well developed in this subspecies, the dark muzzle blaze extending up the forehead and splitting to end at the horn bases.

DISTRIBUTION Flanks of the mountains bordering the Taklimakan Shamo (Takla Makan desert) in southern Xinjiang, China.
