Chamois herds in the Pyrenees

Like gregarious animals that they are, the chamois can form herds of more than 30 specimens. These groups are usually made up of females and their young or males. In the heat period, the groups of males join the groups of females. This separation of the groups by gender (except in the mating period), we can also see it in the Iberian ibex. Thanks to the absence of trees in the supra-forest meadows, it is easy and beautiful to observe the herds of chamois in them.

Like other large herbivorous mammals, meeting in groups is very useful for their survival, since they can warn each other in case of danger and being a large group gives them some protection against predators.
