A delicately built, shy antelope, the chousingha (Tetracerus quadricornis) is the only true four-horned mammal. Both parts of the chousingha’s scientific name actually translate as “four-horned” in Greek and Latin respectively, although only the male has this distinctive feature. The conical back set of horns can be up to 11 centimetres long, while the front horns are usually shorter, and on some young individuals look like black knobs. The short, coarse coat is reddish-brown in colouring, turning lighter on the belly and white on the inner legs and backs of the ears. Dark stripes run down the front of each leg, and the tail is short and un-tufted. Although very swift when startled, the chousingha prefers to take cover and hide when threatened
