Candy was inspired by the Nubian Ibex, a species of wild goat found in Northeastern Africa and the Middle East.  They are highly social animals  that live in herds consisting of females, kids, and younger males. Adult males  leave the herd, sometimes forming small groups of their own. Nubian ibex inhabits rocky and arid areas. Their shiny coat reflects the desert sun, keeping the animals cool. It also has water-repellent properties. Nubian Ibex is considered a vulnerable species with the estimate of 2500 mature animals living in the wild.
