  • Every single wild animal has a special 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 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 goats eat as well as the exposed mineral salts that they like to lick
    Some of the 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
