A tooth eruption and wear pattern useful to determine ten age classes when the horns are not available for this purpose, is described for Cantabrian chamois (Rupicapra pyrenaica parva) inhabiting the Cantabrian Mountains (north of Spain). In animals under eight years old, age is not significantly over- or under-estimated when using the method, however, the age of animals older than eight years is significantly under-estimated.
