Description: Alpine Ibex ( Capra ibex ) two old bullfighting on wildflower meadow in spring . The long winter in the high mountains etiolated and weakened the animals . The changing of the coat gives them an unkempt appearance , their main activity is grazing and resting to recover their strength . Fighting among bulls in spring is rare , short and only a prelude to their real harem fights in early winter . Europe , Italy , Gran Paradiso National Park , June 2003
