Almost hunted to extinction in the 19th century because its blood and horns were thought to possess mythical healing powers, today the alpine ibex numbers some 45,000. After a gestation period of five to six months, the alpine ibex’s young are born in May or June. Immature males and females live together in a herd but the young bucks form a separate herd as they approach maturity.
In the rutting season, adult bucks seek out females and try to win control over the herd by putting on a show of strength. They do this by confronting rival bucks on hind legs and bringing their horns crashing down on those of their opponents. In spring, the bucks become solitary again and spend more and more time alone as they get older.
