Albeit the Mishmi takin is similar to a smaller cow, its closest relatives are caprines in the family of Bovidae. Depending on the periodicity of seasons, takins can be found from forested valleys to rocky, grass covered alpine zones, at altitudes of even over 4500 meters above sea level. Takins live in small family groups of around 20 individuals. In autumn herds gather and move together in smaller groups.
