In the winter season, the Iberian ibex (Capra pyrenaica), also called Iberian wild goat, due to the seasonal decrease in herbaceous plants, increases the proportion of its diet by eating trees and bushes leaves. On the south sides(like this, in the munipicality of Collbató) of Parc Natural de Montserrat, they take advantage of the presence of holm oak (Quercus ilex), boxwood (Buxus sempervirens), buckthorn (Rhamnus alaternus) or rosemary (Salvia rosmarinus or formerly called Rosmarinus officinalis), to feed of its leaves.


In this area you can see the presence of the oak, boxwood and rosemary.
