Southeastern Spanish Ibex
Smaller and lighter in color than the Beceite and Gredos types, but larger and darker than the Ronda type. Southeastern male’s horns rise vertically and lean out and back in a scimitar form with the tips inward. The keel is smooth, making the horns almost round in cross-section.The horns grow proportionately with age: one ring per year. But horn size and shape vary considerably from place to place.
Southeastern Ibex lives in groups as well, in separate herds, one composed of females and young males and another one composed of adult males. The male group only approaches the female one during the rutting season and it is at this time (November – December) when spectacular fights can be observed between adult males for group hierarchy. Females after six months of gestation give birth only to one kid.
