Capra sibirica sibirica

Ibice Siberiano (Sp), Sibirischer Steinbock (G), Bouquetin de Siberie (F).

DESCRIPTION (male) Shoulder height 37-42 inches (95-107 cm). Weight 175-220 pounds (80-100 kg), sometimes more. Females are much smaller.

A large ibex, thick-legged and stoutly built, with a long, pointed chin beard and heavy, scimitar-shaped horns. The summer coat is short, becoming long, coarse and brittle in winter with a dorsal crest and thick undercoat. Color is variable, but generally in summer it is some shade of yellowish or grayish-brown with a darker dorsal stripe, dark underparts and legs, and without a lighter saddle patch. Winter coat is yellowish-white and usually there is a large, light saddle patch. The dorsal stripe, tail and beard are blackish-brown. The male's horns are large and impressive, curving around to form three-fourths of a circle and tapering to relatively slender points. Horns are relatively flat on the front surface and have well-defined cross ridges. Females grow short, thin horns and lack beards.

BEHAVIOR Gregarious, living in herds of 40-50, sometimes more. Older males are often solitary or in small groups of 3-4, frequently in more inaccessible terrain. A grazer. Eyesight and sense of smell are excellent.

HABITAT Open, precipitous terrain at any altitude.

DISTRIBUTION Sayan and Altai mountains of Siberia and Mongolia.
