High in the mountains of the Negev desert of Israel is a herd of fearless goats that trot across the rugged rock face.

The eight-headed family of Nubian ibexes – whose light brown fur makes them incredibly difficult to see on the sand-colored rock – were spotted by a photographer with eagle eyes.

And Nachum Weiss, 69, broke the mother's dangerous journey down the mountainside to pick up her adventurous child that the vertical rock had flown off.

His photos show the Nubian ibex goats that make the steep descent by zigzagging over the sloping rocks.

Weiss said: & A small herd of mountain goats came down the pass on their way to food, but a newborn decided to descend a mountain pass.

& # 39; The mother would not lose sight of him.

& # 39; I really like this photo because the nature relationship between mother and their child excites me. & # 39;

Remarkably, neither the child nor the mother puts a hoof out of its place while they navigate and subtly make their way down.

Nubian ibex – a species from North Africa and the Middle East – live in mountainous areas of the desert to prevent predators.

They can live at heights up to 8,000 feet and have cleft hooves to survive on the rocky terrain.

Their hooves have sharp edges and concave bottoms that have a sucking effect that grasps the sloping cliffs.

Capricorns can also jump more than six feet from a standing start, allowing them to climb an often rugged mountainside.
