The chinkara is also known as the Indian Gazelle.  They live in dry, arid grasslands and deserts, mainly in western and northwestern India as well as in parts of Bangladesh, Pakistan and Iran.  The chinkara is a solitary animal but is sometimes found in small groups.  Their diet consists of grass and other types of vegetation; they can go for long periods without drinking water.
