A Tibetan Unicorn that was unfriendly and wild. The Tsopo is a beautiful horse with one single magical horn protruding from the middle of its forehead. When Westerners went to Tibet in the early 20th century they failed to find any Unicorns and thus stopped believing in the Tibetan myth. Explorers believe that the only animal there that is similar to a Unicorn is the chiru, a hoofed creature with two horns. The Tibetan hunters would trade male chirus that only had one horn. This is said to have been a basis for the belief of the Tibetan Unicorn.

There are two other Tibetan Unicorns; Serou and Kere.
