Caprinae or caprids are also sometimes referred to as a goat-antelope, however, this term "goat-antelope" does not mean that these animals are true antelopes: a true antelope is a bovid with a cervid-like or antilocaprid-like morphology.

Within this subfamily Caprinae, a prominent tribe Caprini includes sheep, goat, and ibex.

Some earlier taxonomies considered Caprinae a separate family called Capridae (whence a caprid), but now it is usually considered a subfamily within the Bovidae family, whence a caprine is a kind of bovid.
