Iberian Ibex


The Iberian Ibex (Capra pyrenaica) are strong mountainous animals characterized by their large and flexible hooves and short legs. These physical adaptations allow them to be able to run and leap on bare, rocky, rough, and steep slopes. This gives them an advantage over potential predators that cannot reach them because of the terrain. The Iberian Ibex is generally a mixed feeder between a browser and a grazer, depending on the plant availability in their home range.
