Chamois in the Bonaigua

Chamois on the snow in the port of La Bonaigua.


Chamois walking in the snow in the port of La Bonaigua, an area where the regions of Vall d’Aran and Pallars Sobirá (Lleida Pyrenees) junction. Due to the harsh climatic conditions of the Pyrenean winter, the chamois (Rupicabra rupicapra pyrenaica) usually descend to the subalpine forests, during this season of the year. In forests they can browse leaves of shrubs or trees, bite tree bark and eat lichens. In some places, they can also change from north to south slope in the harshest moments of winter, seeking less extreme temperatures. Thanks to their fully adapted hooves, chamois can walk and move with agility on thicker layers of snow. This allows them to escape predators even in the harshest conditions. Another species such as the mouflon however, has difficulties when it encounters thick layers of snow and is easy prey for the wolf or the bear, as it happens in the Alps, where every winter a large number of mouflon are hunted by wolves.


The chamois are adapted to walk in these conditions.
