The Indochinese serow (Capricornis milneedwardsii maritimus) is a vulnerable goat-antelope, a subspecies of the Chinese serow, native to Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar, Thailand and Vietnam.

In Cambodia the Indochinese serow, known as សត្វកែះ /sat kɛh/ , is restricted to the forests of the karstic mountain areas in Mondulkiri Province. The main threat in Cambodia comes from logging, hunting as well as landmines and other ordnance left by the conflict.[1]
