The chamois is a species of goat-antelope native to mountains in Spain. This small bovid lives at some of the highest mountain ranges in Spain. They are adapted to living in precipitous, rugged, rocky terrain. They can be found at elevations up to at least 3,600 m (11,800 ft). Usually Chamois spend their summers above the tree line in meadows. When winter rolls around, they go to lower elevations, of around 800 m (2,600 ft), to live in forests, mainly in areas dominated by pines.
In Spain there are 2 different subspecies of Chamois: the pyrenean chamois and the cantabrian chamois.
