Ronda ibex is one of three categories established for record-keeping purposes by splitting Mediterranean ibex (subspecies Hispánica) into geographical groups based on horn size and shape.
DESCRIPTION The smallest type of Spanish ibex with the smallest horns. Overall color is a light brown. The horns resemble those of an Alpine ibex, typically growing upward in a V-shape, then backward with a spiral turn of only 90 degrees. Horn thickness is constant for half the length, then decreases gradually to the broomed tips. While this is the typical Ronda horn conformation, other horn shapes may be found in this region and even in the same herd.
DISTRIBUTION Ronda Mountains in extreme southern Spain.
Hunting Season – From October to end of May
RUT – 15 October to end of December.
