A very handsome European Alpine Chamois taxidermy mount.
The chamois is a large sized mountain goat, native to the European mountains. Today, the range of the chamois includes the European Alps, Romania, Italy, Switzerland, Austria and parts of Turkey.
The chamois has short horns, that curve backwards on both the male chamois and the female chamois. The fur of the chamois is thick to keep it warm in the alpine winters, and turns from a deep brown color in the summer to a grey color in the winter. The chamois also has a white colored face with black markings below the eyes. The chamois has a black stripe that runs along it's back from neck to rump.
