Nubian ibex

Capra nubiana

Description:

This is relatively small ibex is most easily recognised by the impressive, backward-arching horns of the male which are long, slender and ridged on their outer curve casting a magnificent silhouette against the rocky, mountainous terrain of its surroundings. Whilst found in both sexes, these horns are much larger in males than females, growing up to 120 cm on bucks, and only 35 cm on females. The coat is a light sandy brown colour, with a white underbelly, while the legs bear conspicuous black-and-white markings .
