SPRING ISSUE #129: Photo Reference Study: IBEX

by Larry Blomquist

Ibex belong to the genus Capra, which includes all of the goats, including domestic goats. There are 5 ibex species recognized and most exist in distinct geographical areas and most can be identified by hair color, but the recurving horns are similar. Summer and winter coats can vary in color making it vary difficult for me to properly identify each of the many ibex photos I have collected over the years. The features of anatomy  are very similar in all of the ibex species, like most animal groups, but there is a lot of individuality within the subspecies meaning form alterations may be needed to adapt to size and differences in head shape.
