Nubian Ibex

The Nubian Ibex has a great friend when it comes to grooming. Grackles will land on the ibex and search for any parasites on its body. The bird gets a meal and the ibex is bug free!

While both male and female ibex have horns, the male's grow much longer. The female ibex is smaller, too; only 1/3 the size of the male.
