Animals You've Never Heard Of - Takin

I'm sure some of you have heard of a takin, but many people have probably not. It's not a commonly mentioned or popular animal. According to Wikipedia a takin is a sort of antelope-goat creature that lives in the Eastern Himalayas. It looks a bit more like a cross between a cow and a mountain goat to me.


In any case, it's an interesting creature. I thought of it because someone posted a pic of it on Facebook today, showing a new baby takin at the Highland Wildlife Park.
Someone mentioned that it was an odd creature. But I found this picture to actually be quite cute. He looks like a big brown lamb!

What do you think of takins? Odd? Interesting? Or Cute?
Had you ever heard of one before now?
