History Przewalski´s Horse, Asian Wild Horse or Mongolian Wild Horse (Equus ferus przewalskii) is a rare and endangered subspecies of Wild Horse (Equus ferus) native to the steppes of central Asia. It is the only surviving wild horse subspecies. At one time extinct in the wild, it has been reintroduced to its native habitat in Mongolia at the Khustain Nuruu National Park, Takhin Tal Nature Reserve and Khomiin Tal. The taxonomic position is still debated, and some taxonomists treat Przewalski´s Horse as a species, Equus przewalskii. However, genetic research in 2009 indicates that Przewalski´s horses and domestic horses are very closely related and that Przewalski´s horses do not form a separate monophyletic group
