Nubian ibex is a light tan with a white underside. Males might have dark brown stripes down the back of their bodies. The trademark of this animal is its long, thin horns that can grow upwards and then backward and curved down. Male’s horns can grow up to 1m (3.28 ft) in length, while only 20cm (12 inches) in females.
They are herbivores as their diet includes mainly leaves and grasses. Sometimes, they also feed on shrubs, herbs, buds, and fruits. Due to water and heat constraints, they feed at night and only occasionally during the day. When not foraging, they rest in shaded areas to cool themselves.
