Spanish Ibex 04
Gaucin, Andalucia, April 2010
The south European hispanica sub-species of
Europes only Ibex. The other sub-species can be
found in the Pyrenees. The southern lot not only
frequent mountain tops and bare rocky hillsides but also
like the shelter of dense conifer (bottom photo).
Both habitats are difficult in terms of getting close to
them. It's often just luck that you stumble across
them and make the most of the opportunity. The
males have huge curly horns (above).
