Animal of the day – 9/03/2010 – The Ibex

The Ibex

The animal of the day is the Ibex. (Did you know: The Ibex has for a long time been regarded as a mystical animal – almost all of its body parts and its excrement were sought after as cures for various illnesses and as ingredients for magical potions! Expelliarmus!

Both males and females have those awesome horns, and they are used to defend themselves from wolves, lynxes, foxes and bears that also habitate the European alps where Ibexes live. Oh, the horns have another use as well…
