PostSubject: 1/20 Iberian Ibex (Capra Pyrenaica)   Mon Nov 11, 2013 2:38 pm

I wish to present my latest creation: the Iberian Ibex (also called "cabra montés" in Spain).
This  figure is made in 1/20 scale.

I want to introduce a small Information directly from Wikipedia study  about this  specie and their characteristics.
A strong and majestic animal typical of the Iberian Peninsula until recently also extended on both sides of the Pyrenees. The Iberian ibex Capra pyrenaica populates the Iberian Peninsula and consisted originally of four subspecies. However with recent extinctions occurring within the last century, only two of the subspecies still exist. These two subspecies of ibexes, the Capra pyrenaica hispanica and the Capra pyrenaica victoriae, can be found along the Spanish Iberian Peninsula and have even migrated and settled into the coast of Portugal.

Capra pyrenaica are strong mountainous animals characterized by their large and flexible hooves and short legs. These physical adaptations allow them to be able to run and leap on bare, rocky, rough, and steep slopes. This gives them an advantage over potential predators that possibly cannot reach them because of the terrain. The Iberian ibex also shows remarkable sexual dimorphism, with males being greater in size, coloration and weight and also having larger horns as the females. Is very characteristic of this specie the dark spots that increase in size with age and twisted horns lyre-shaped. The horns of the ibexes are different among wild caprids as they curve out and up and then back, inward, and, depending on subspecies, either up again or down.

Well, after this I show you the pictures. Hope you like it !!Very Happy

All mornings, before go to work, I find one of these walking along the coast of Portugal and I think: - here goes the IBEX 35, the Spanish Ibex! Laughing Wink geek
Kidding, this is a wonderful figure of our interesting Iberian fauna. You performed again a great work and you should not only feel proud of it as also keeping giving us such beautiful figures! cheers
