The horns are only characteristic of the males and are light-colored, approximately six inches in length, and curve slightly towards the animal’s back.

It usually stays in a very small area of only a few square miles where it grazes on grass, shoots and leaves from along beaten paths. It marks its territory with droppings and markings. It is most active at dawn and dusk, and spends the rest of the day in thick vegetation resting. The mainland serow gives birth to a single young usually in September or October. The gestation period is about eight months.
