The chamois is the smallest of the Capra species and has perfectly adapted to its way of life among the steep mountain sides. It has soft hooves that allow it to stand firmly in this habitat. In warmer seasons chamois’ coat is light brown, while in winter it’s coat becomes very dark and thick. The black and white markings on its head are the most characteristic features of the chamois.
While both sexes have horns, just like the north American mountain goat which curve backwards, the ram’s horns are thicker at the bases and more curved than the ewe’s.
