or Steinbok to me.
Thank you for the correction. I'd asked a local what I'd seen up there, trying to describe it, and they called it a chamois. Do they look similar?
Look similar? Maybe from a long distance...
This is a chamois.
Yes, doing a bit of research just now, they look quite different.
According to Wikipedia, the steinbok live in Africa. I suppose this is where they originated from. Are they not native to Europe?
Africa? I've never heard that!
Maybe some subspecies... Steinbock is the german name (in italian "stambecco", in slovenian "kozorog"). Its scientific name is "capra ibex"
I found this article on wikipedia
It's a steinbock, not a chamois.
