Description head inclined slightly to the right. His shaggy coat is defined by incised vertical lines and he stands on a small irregularly shaped base. His left foreleg is missing; the hind legs are conjoined. The long neck and large head are very much out of proportion to his short body and legs whist his prominent beard and huge horns serve to emphasise the characteristics of his species (Marsden).
