Bezoar Goat

The bezoar goat (Capra aegagrus aegagrus), also known as mountain goat or wild goat, is a wild goat subspecies. The bezoar goat is the ancestor of modern domestic goat.

The bezoar goat is known particularly for the size of its horns; they possess the world’s longest horns in relation to body weight. Bezoars average about 60 kg, and their horns can grow as long as 150 cm. Females are slightly smaller, and their horns tend to grow to a mere 40 cm.  The male bezoar uses the horns to defend itself and to fight for the females.

The typical habitats are rocky mountains with hardly accessible cliffs.
