A Siberian Ibex is a mammal that is native to the mountains of Central Asia. Inhabiting rocky areas at high altitude, they have several adaptations that allow them to handle tough conditions including a thick coat and sharp hooves.

Siberian Ibexes have been domesticated as livestock by many cultures for their meat and wool since prehistoric times, which has reduced their wild populations significantly.

Currently there are around 60 thousand Siberian Ibexes in the wild.
