Goral occupy an evolutionary position between goats and sheep, and true antelopes (called goat antelopes) with a goat-like appearance, smell, and climbing ability, but have an oxen or antelope-like muzzle.
Goral are known for their climbing agility, and their ability to gallop along steep slopes with breathtaking speed.
