Humans haven't known about the saola for very long - the (https://www.worldwildlife.org/species/saola) WWF notes that it was found in 1992 during a survey in Vietnam.
Making things difficult is how elusive the saola is.
A new species of Vietnamese ox, weighting approximately 100 kilos and known as Saola or Vu Quang Ox (Pseudoryx Nghetinhensis) was discovered in 1993 (Dung et al., 1993 and 1994).
As in the cases of the panda bear (Da-Yuan et al.), and the Saola ox, the lack of huemul females donors of ovocytes, receptive females and the interspecific barriers largely compromise the success of the cloning technique.
