These 36 Goats On Cliffs Don’t Know What Fear Is

ADVERTISEMENT

Every single wild animal has a unique environmental niche that it occupies to survive, and wild Mountain goats have evolved to occupy some of the weirdest and most hard-to-reach ecological niches out there – steep cliff faces.

These wild goats aren’t crazy – the cliffs they spend most of their lives on confer numerous benefits, including protection from land-bound predators, foraging, and access to mineral licks. The harsh winds that sweep these cliffs clear of snow also expose the hardy grasses that these mountain climbing goats eat as well as the exposed mineral salts that they like to lick.

Some of the rock climbing goats pictures here are Rocky Mountain goats from the U.S. This species is technically a goat-antelope, but the other goats pictured here, like the alpine ibex or the chamoix, are true goats.
These funny goats all have particular adaptations that allow them to navigate their steep mountainous environments with ease. Unlike a horse’s hoof, their hooves are cloven, meaning that they can spread their weight and grasp the ground. The edges of their hooves are stiff and hard while the centers are softer, allowing them to grip tiny cracks or uneven, rocky surfaces. Some of them even have rough, uneven pads of skin in between their hooves that further help the goats on cliffs stay on.

Check the incredibly talented goats climbing trees, rocks, dams and any other steep surfaces they can find!

The greatest Joy in my life today is that i have been cured of Herpes by a Doctor called Dr. Ishiaku, I was infected with HERPES Disease in 2019, i went to many hospitals for cure but there was no solution, so I was thinking how can I get a solution,so that my body can be okay. Until one faithful day as I was browsing the internet I saw a testimony on how Dr. Ishiaku has helped people in curing Herpes and other diseases, quickly copied his WhatsApp number so I contacted him for a solution for my Herpes disease, So Dr. Ishiaku told me that he was going to prepare his herbal medicine for my health which he sent to me, luckily after 2week my Herpes was cured. Dr Ishiaku is well recognized as one of the best herbalist doctors in Africa, you don't have to be sad anymore or cry anymore on this disease when the cure is available. The medicine has NO SIDE EFFECT,there's no special diet when taking the medicine. He also cures  ALS, HIV AIDS,  HPV, DIABETES and lots more. For enquiries: WhatsApp
