Hi, Rebecca,

if I am not very much mistaken, it is a male alpine ibex. Not sure about
the subspecies (alpine, sibirian, spanish...) but pretty sure about the

Great pics, by the way, I particularly like the dolphin!

It's an Ibex. A quick look at the ISIS website confirms that Chicago
Brookfield has a herd of Siberian Ibex (Capra sibirica sibirca).
Nice animal and a nice pose. Regards
