The wild goat is a nimble and shy animal that lives in mountains or forests. Such goats love calm and mate in captivity. However, many beauties that came from domestic goats are on the verge of extinction and are protected by various organizations.
These goats have red-gray wool with a stripe on the back of a brown color. Often they have white legs and dark brown marks on their legs. All these signs are clearly visible on the photo of the goat, as well as the fact that she looks like a female horned goat. A wild goat of this origin has particular horns. They represent a symbiosis of the horns of the Markhor and the bearded goat.
They are flat in cross section and fall back. The maximum length of the horns is 74 cm. However, the record horns were recorded in 1969 and were almost 102 cm long. In addition to the physical similarity of this wild goat with the horned goat, it has the same habits. The only difference is the mating period. Sulaiman begins to mate in the third week of October, and the offspring appears in early April. This goat often leads twins.
Sanada (Cree Cree)
Sanada can be up to 1.5 m long, plus a tail of 15 cm. This is a fairly tall wild goat with light brown hair on its body. If you carefully examine Sanada in the photo, you can see that her face and legs may have a darker shade.
It is noteworthy that in the summer time, the fur of this animal from the eastern Mediterranean can become almost red. This species of wild goats quickly adapts to changing weather conditions and becomes almost gray in winter (camouflage). Currently, these animals are protected by the authorities, because in the world there are only 2,000 goats of this subspecies of domestic goats.
Chamois or Rupikapra
This unique goat lives in Europe and Asia Minor. Here are some of its characteristics: small size, short tail and compact body. It is difficult to find in nature Chamois, whose weight exceeds 50 kg. On average, such a goat may be forty-kilogram.
Chamois is one of the most beautiful wild goats with short muzzle and sharp ears. It is noteworthy that not only the male Rupikapra has curved horns, but also females. There is a hole in the horns, which during mating is filled with a special secret that attracts the attention of other individuals.
Sierna lives in the Alps, Carpathians and the Balkan Mountains. These brisk animals like rocks (in summer), wild forest thickets (in winter) and meadows that are inaccessible to humans. Chamois become sexually mature in 2-3 years. They give birth to offspring in early summer. A goat can give birth to up to 3 cubs per year.
