The Balearean goat is only found on Mallorca - on the northern peninsular of Formentor. The unique habitat found here provides the perfect setting for this traditional Spanish mountain hunt.
The coat of this wild goat is reddish brown, and the males sport a beard and large, spiral, rear facing horns. Occasionally the females also grow horns.
This species is relatively new in a SCI-context and much sought after. It was brought to Mallorca around 2000 b.c.. - brought to the island by the Phoenicians, primarily as a source of food.
