Himalayan Tahr's introduction

Himalayan Tahr is a type of Friend whose design was first revealed in Guidebook 7.

Appearance

She has long hair that's black at the top and white in the bottom half. She has animalistic golden eyes with horizontal pupils, typical for real-life goats. Large horns and animal ears protrude from her head. She wears a big white cape out of the animals undercoat. She wears a light brown jacket and a dark brown skirt. She also wears black gloves and stockings with white highlights. Her shoes are black with a white front. Like most other bovid friends, she wields weapons representing the animals horns. Interestingly, instead of the usual double-sided spear she uses twin daggers.

In Real Life

The Himalayan tahr is a large even-toed ungulate native to the Himalayas in southern Tibet, northern Pakistan, northern India and Nepal, and has additionally been introduced to Argentina, New Zealand, South Africa and the United States. The Himalayan tahr has a small head, small pointed ears, large eyes, and horns that vary between males and females; these can reach a maximum length of 46 centimetres (18 in). Their thick, reddish wool coats and undercoats are suited to the harsh temperatures of the Himalayas.

The herbivorous diets of the Himalayan tahrs leave them spending most of their time grazing on grasses and browsing on leaves and some fruits. Their short legs allow them to balance while reaching for the leaves of shrubs and small trees. The tahr consumes more woody plants than herb species with as much as 75% of the tahr diet consisting of natural grasses. The tahr, like most members of the bovid family such as cows, are ruminants; that is, they possess complex digestive systems designed to acquire nutrients from otherwise indigestible plant matter.
