The takhi were very shy and possessed a keen sense of smell, hearing and sight. It took another 20 years for conservation and breeding programs to become effective and for the horse to show signs that it might survive. By 1990, the population had reached nearly a thousand, with 961 P-horses living in over 129 institutions in 33 countries on four continents-enough to try reintroducing the takhi to the wild. All of today’s reintroduced takhi descend from just 12 captured horses and several cross-breedings.
Przewalski's horse, Equus przewalskii or Equus ferus przewalskii, also called the Mongolian wild horse or Dzungarian horse, is a rare and endangered horse native to the steppes of central Asia.
About the Przewalski's Horse. Przewalski's horses are the last surviving subspecies of wild horse. Never again seen in the wild, Przewalski’s horses have since been kept and bred in captivity and have recently been reintroduced in Mongolia. With a short, muscular body, Przewalski’s horses are smaller than most domesticated horses.
Przewalski's horses are seen at the West Lake national nature reserve area near Xihu, in northwestern China's Gansu province, on May 13, 2013. According to the International Union for Conservation of Nature, Przewalski's horses once roamed as far as Western Europe. But as the centuries passed, climatic change reduced their habitat and the remainder were so widely hunted, mainly for food, that they were classified as extinct in the wild in 1960 - although a living specimen was later found in Mongolia.
The Przewalski's horse is a subspecies of Equus ferus and is considered the closest relative of the domestic horse. It is cousin to zebras and the wild ass, which all fall under the Equidae family. The split between Przewalski's horse species and the ancestors of domestic horses happened somewhere between 120,000 and 240,000 years ago. 2. Przewalski’s horses are named after Col. Nikolai Przewalski, who was the first Western scientist to describe the species in writing in 1878
Przewalski’s horse is a wild horse that became extinct in the wild in the 1960’s. Today’s wild population is formed of the descendants of just 12 captive specimens. Przewalski’s Horse Facts at a Glance. Przewalski’s horse was named after the Russian explorer and naturalist Nikolay Przewalski. He first described the animal while exploring in Central Asia in the latter part of the nineteenth century. A species is said to be ‘described’ when it is named and recognized as a new species. Przewalski’s horse is considered by many to be the last truly wild horse since it has never been domesticated by humans. The taxonomic status of Przewalski’s horse is debated by scientists. Some consider the animal to be a subspecies (type) of wild horse (Equus ferus)
Przewalski's horses, critically endangered horses found in Mongolia, are the last truly wild horse. Once thought to be the ancestor to the domestic horse, they are actually distant cousins.
Where once the species fled to areas where food was scarce to avoid hunters, the Przewalski’s horses now remain on grass-dominated pastures of the Gobi alongside local people and their livestock.

During the Summer of 2008, Przewalski's Horses found themselves in Pommerol, a lost and tiny village in the french mountains of Drome. Equipped only with an accordion, a mandolin, and the dusty local harmonium, they fell asleep, and recorded these three acoustic, mellow and hypnotic tracks.
