Japanese Serow Mountain Goat – Nihon kamoshika

I met this animal in the mountains of the Japan Southern Alps and we gave each other quite a start before settling in for an extended staring contest. A nice viewer left a comment identifying this animal as a Japanese mountain goat or Nihon kamoshika (capricornis crispus) as it is called in Japanese. I apologize for the low quality of the video which was shot just after dawn in a very dark forest and by a cameraman who just can’t learn to hold his camera steady.
