The Ibex, or deer, are very common and is a species of goat actually. They do need to drink so we can sometimes find them near the streams in the desert, but it is fairly uncommon to see females (does), or babies (kids), usually you only see the mature males (bucks). You can often see them leaping around on the cliffs as you stand transfixed, just waiting for them to fall, which I have never seen them do, even after more than 25 years of watching. The most impressive are the old males with their recurving horns that can sometimes reach from their heads in a curve to reach their backs.
