C_ae_cretica_004

Did you know that this “smallest wild goat” lives on at least ten different islands in the Aegean archipelagos? That you can also observe it near Athens? And that it once was so plentiful that Odysseus and his men hunted 109 of them in one morning? Find out about this “extremely valuable” (Groves and Grubb 2011) subspecies in my latest caprinae world chapter: http://www.wilddocu.de/cretan-wild-goat-capra-hircus-cretica/

    They’re super easy to see in the Samaria Gorge, wandering around an abandoned village at the base.
