I love this photo! Are twins rare among the Ibex?

Thanks.
Twins are extremly rare among these animals. So, I think it's most probable that these two youngs would'n be brothers. Sometimes, ibex females of the same group share the care of the offsprings.
Really, the tree animals in the photo was a part of a group of about 30 adult females and offsprings.
