Nubian Ibex

At A Glance

  • Conservation Status: Threatened
  • Location: Africa Rocks
  • ZOO ZONE: Africa Rocks

    With large curved horns measuring up to four feet long, and segmented, concave hooves to climb even the steepest rocky cliffs, the Nubian ibex is both amazingly sure-footed and eye-catching. This wild goat species, native to northeastern Africa and the Middle East, can be seen in Africa Rocks’ Ethiopian Highlands multispecies habitat, which the Nubian ibex share with geladas.
