Officially, The CIC recognizes only two subspecies of Ibex in Spain. Nevertheless, it is commonly accepted to devide the Spanish Ibex into four groups, depending on their location: Gredos Ibex, Beceite Ibex, Ronda Ibex, Sierra Nevada Ibex. Each of them is slightly different.
The Tortosa -Beceite Ibex gets its name from the region in eastern Spain. It´s second largest of all four and can weight up to 110kg. In winter the male fur is almost black and in the summer it´s light brown in colour. What mainly distinguishes this type of Ibex are its horns that expands to the sides like an airplane wings. The males can live up to 15-16 years.
Like many other animals, The Spanish Ibex lives in separate herds. Adult males always go in separate groups, and males together with young males in a different ones. Only during the rut season the males approach the females. Unlike the Gredos Ibex, the Beceite type can be easily spotted in spring close to almond bushes.
