Chamois hunting in the high mountains
The Alpine chamois (Rupicapra rupicapra), belonging to the Bovidae family, is a large mammal with a robust and compact shape, which reaches a body length of 100-130 cm and a height of 70-90 cm at the withers. As an adult it reaches a weight of up to 40 kg for females and 50 kg for males.
The head of the chamois is elongated and relatively small compared to the body, with a thin muzzle; the horns, ebony color, are simple and hooked at the tip and are present in both sexes.
The hair changes are two, in autumn (between August and October) and in spring (between April and June) and lead to the modification of the color and length of the coat. In summer it is reddish brown, with the presence of a dorsal line, while in winter it is much darker, almost black with a lighter forehead and throat.
The chamois has diurnal habits, more active at sunrise and sunset in feeding and in moving to rest in the hottest hours during the summer.
