SIERRA NEVADA IBEX

Sierra Nevada or Southeastern ibex is a very old specie. It is estimated that during the Pliocene Era (7 million years ago), the caprinidae of Central Asia arrived in Europe and it was around the Riss Glacial stage when the Iberian formed the Ibex of Central Europe.

The southeastern ibex or Sierra Nevada ibex can be found all over the Eastern side of Andalusia in the provinces of Granada, Almeria and Jaen.

The males have thick, rough, knotty horns, and are normally in the shape of semicircles curving backwards. In contrast to deer, they do not shed them annually, but keep them throughout their entire lives. The age of the animals can be measured by the rings of annual growth. They move easily around rocky walls of incredible verticality, thanks to the peculiarity of their hooves, whose internal surface is non-slip. Even when they are sedentary, in winter they carry out prolonged displacements in search of refuge and shelter, climbing down to lower areas.
