They dont build dams like that anymore. Stone on stone.

do you think its licking the salts that etch out from the mortor and stones.

Apparently that's what it is, along with lichen?

I suspect that the first pic is photoshopped.
It looks like they have taken the image of the one ibex in the video in different positions and then put them in different places on the pic of the dam.
On the videos they didn't film all of them and I find that a bit strange too.
The video I think is genuine
