Southeastern Spanish Ibex

The Southeastern Spanish ibex or Beceite ibex (Capra pyrenaica hispanica) is a goat that is endemic to Spain.

The Southeastern Spanish ibex inhabits the Sierra Nevada, Sierra de Cazorla, Sierra de Grazalema, Montes de Malaga, in Andalucia. It also occurs in the Sierra Morena. Outside Andalucia it can be found in the Montes de Toledo and the mountains all the way up the Spanish Mediterranean with populations as far north as southern Catalonia, which gives hope that one day it might recolonise the Pyrenees.

Famous quotes containing the word spanish:

    Ferdinand De Soto, sleeping
    In the river, never heard
    Four-and-twenty Spanish hooves
    Fling off their iron and cut the green,
    Leaving circles new and clean
    While overhead the wing-tips whirred.
    Mark Van Doren (1894–1973)
