In 1898, people didn't carry cameras on them. If they saw something they wanted to remember, they drew it. Thankfully, a guy named Lydekker saw this Nilgiri Ibex and took the time to painfully illustrate it in amazing detail. He also drew hundred, if not thousands of engaging images of the world's biodiversity way back in the day, helping to lay the foundation of our modern-day understanding of the world and its inhabitants.
