Chamois

Chamois live in forests at moderately high altitudes and are adapted to living in steep, rugged, rocky terrain. Chamois and their young live in herds mostly headed by an old goat. They never shed their horns which keep growing throughout their lifetime, but after 5 years grow only 1-2 mm per year. During the summer the coat is short and smooth, but in winter it becomes long and dense and grows in dark or black. In the huge enclosure in Steinwasen Park you can easily observe the chamois in their natural habitat.
