The Fauna of the Dolomites

The mountains and the woods of Alta Badia offer a unique attraction for those who love the animal world. The rustling of wings, the running of a roe-deer, the cheerful scurrying of a squirrel, the singing of birds and the perfect flight of an eagle help to animate the different aspects of this world which surrounds us.

In the high mountains the reliefs have caused the bigger four-legged animals to acquire an extraordinary agility. This vital quality gives them a sureness of step which means they always tread in the right place without ever slipping.

The most noted example is the chamois. A springy hoof with several sections which can separate independently from each other makes the chamois the king of the mountains. Chamois are found in the gorges of the Sella, in the Puez Ghardenacia group, in the valleys of the Setsas and especially on the Fanes plateau. It is often possible to encounter packs of 20-30 chamois. Whilst in the summer they venture up the mountains to heights of 3,000 metres, they spend the winter in the high mugo pine woods..
