Description

Weighing between 22 to 40 kg, they are the smallest wild goats in the Alps. Adapted to moving over rocks and snow, their hooves have two separate parts that can swivel and are connected by an interdigital septum. By the end of the 20th century, the chamois had almost disappeared from the Bellecote massif, but five individuals were reintroduced in 1992. The population is now substantial and has benefited from a temporary halt in hunting and natural recolonisation.
