Description:

Sexual dimorphism in Cantabrian chamois Rupicapra pyrenaica parva (Cebrera, 1911) horn lenght was recorded annually for the first five years of life. The horns of the males were larger than those of females, though horn growth rate in the first two years (ie horn length in the first two years divided by horn length in the first five years) was greater in females than males. Sexual dimorphism in horn length of Cantabrian chamois adults was found to be the highest of genus according to available data.
