A Walia ibex (Capra walie) usually gives birth to around 1 babies.

Each of those little ones spend around 157 days as a fetus before they are released into the wild. Upon birth, they weight 2.78 kg (6.13 lbs) and measure 37.5 cm (1′ 3″). They are a member of the Bovidae family (genus: Capra). An adult Walia ibex grows up to a size of 1.2 meter (4′ 0″).

The walia ibex (Capra walie, Ge’ez: ዋልያ wālyā) is an endangered species of ibex. It is sometimes considered a subspecies of the Alpine ibex. Threats against the species include habitat loss, poaching, and restricted range; only about 500 individuals survived in the mountains of Ethiopia, concentrated in the Semien Mountains, largely due to past poaching and habitat depletion. If the population were to increase, the surrounding mountain habitat would be sufficient to sustain only 2,000 ibex. The adult walia ibex’s only known wild predator is the hyena. However, young ibex are often hunted by a variety of fox and cat species. The ibex are members of the goat family, and the walia ibex is the southernmost of today’s ibexes. In the late 1990s, the walia ibex went from endangered to critically endangered due to the declining population. The walia ibex is also known as the Abyssinian ibex.
