Rupicapra pyrenaica

The chamois, sarrio or antelope (Rupicapra rupicapra) is a bovine of the subfamily Caprinae present in some European mountain ranges, such as the Carpathians, the Alps, the Caucasus, the Pyrenees or the Cantabrian mountain range and certain mountainous areas of the Balkans , Slovakia and Turkey.

Some authors classify the specimens of the Pyrenees and the Cantabrian Cornice as a separate species, the Pyrenean chamois (Rupicapra pyrenaica), although this is not something that has yet been adopted by the entire international scientific community.
