Fairly large and long-long legged animal with a short coat of light grey colour, often splashed with brown or black; typically with pendulous ears of moderate size; both sexes have homonymously twisted horns, commonly projecting horizontally outwards; males usually have well developed bifid beards; all males and some females carry a diffuse bushy mane which extends on to the anterior part of the back; the females are poor milkers (Epstein, 1971).
Inhabits in the dry areas of the Republic of Sudan, generally to the north of 12°N but nort of 10°N in Darfur and western kordofan. Also in parts of Eritrea and westwards into Chad. (Wilson, 1991).
These goats may be associated with the groups of Sahel goats, which include many Saharan types from Egypt, Libya, Tunisia, Algeria and Morocco.
