Photo of a Chamois, Rupricapra rupricapra, which is well adapted to living in high altitudes all over Europe. It prefers palisade steep slopes, but in the winter it descends to the tree line. Both females and males have antlers. It was hunted almost up to extinction, but now it is strictly protected.
