National Animal of Bhutan is the Takin, a rare type of goat-antelope living in the Eastern Himalayas. You will find Takins moving freely in Motithang Takin Preserve, a 15-minute drive from Thimphu
Few years ago when Takins were confined in a mini Zoo, the King of Bhutan felt bad for the confinement of the animal, and ordered to free the animal from the clutches. Surprisingly, Takins strayed on the streets of Thimphu in search of food for weeks. Thereafter, it was decided to keep them in a forested habitat from where the preserve came in.
