Hybrid Ibex - Species Detail
||American ibex, exotic ibex
Called American Ibex or Exotic Ibex in early editions of the Record Book.
DESCRIPTION These are hybrids between one or more species of wild ibex (Bezoar, Alpine, Asian, Nubian) and the domestic goat. In theory, full species such as these should not cross and produce fertile offspring; however, nearly all species of goats will interbreed under captive conditions, and fertile offspring are a matter of record. A great variety of physical characteristics-including spectacular horns-can result from such crosses. If breeding is carefully controlled, animals can be produced that are visually indistinguishable from purebreds. Horns (both sexes) are scimitar-shaped, forming about a three-fourths curl without a spiral twist.
DISTRIBUTION Private ranches, mainly in Texas.
HYBRIDIZATION Please see descriptive text above.
