Do you know anyone by the name of Yael? This animal is called an ibex or in Hebrew Yael. We saw quite a few ibex on our trip to the Dead Sea, where we hiked up (and back down) Nahal David, the shorter hike at Ein Gedi. As it was quite hot and my daughter got tired from our short Nahal David hike, we are glad we did not do the longer Nahal Arugot hike. Also, unlike our sad Banias experience where we were not allowed to go in the water, there is plenty of swimming, wading and sitting under waterfalls in Nahal David.
Psalms 104:18 —
The high mountains are for the wild goats; the rocks are a refuge for the conies.
הָרִים הַגְּבֹהִים, לַיְּעֵלִים; סְלָעִים, מַחְסֶה לַשְׁפַנִּים
According to the Ein Gedi brochure, the wild goats are Nubian ibex. The conies are rock hyrax, and I have a picture of one of those furry animals, too (for a later post).
