Animals A to Z. The Letter I

Marty’s photo of the day #2620: It’s “Animals A thru Z Month.” Each day in August, I will post an animal I’ve photographed—somewhere in the world—in alphabetical order.

I is for Ibex. I photographed these two young ibex in Spain. Once a plentiful species, the IUCN classifies Spanish ibex as “near threatened.” As with so many other animals, human activities are responsible for their peril. In this instance, overhunting has reduced ibex numbers to fewer than thirty thousand.
