      Barrier???

      Wont the Ibex be able to jump over those fences or is there another barrier?
    • Toddy
      That is just a barrier to keep the visitors on their path and not disturb the ibex. There is another fence behind the path:)

      This is great but I always think it is a bit mean to keep animals in enclosures that take the animal to the limit of its adaptive capacity.Obviously the ibex are well able for the rockwork but I bet they would love an area of pasture too - even a small one.Just because an animal can deal with the toughest terrain or conditions should not mean having no other option 24h a day 365 days a year.
