Mountain goats on steep mountain cliffs
Each type of animal occupies a special niche in the environment. Mountain goats have chosen for themselves a niche extreme and inaccessible to other animals - almost steep mountain cliffs. These amazing animals can be found in the mountains at an altitude of 5.5 km above sea level. Mountain goats are agile, hardy, careful, but also brave. They live in families or small herds.
In the mountains, wild goats are not afraid of predators, but they feed on the vegetation that the mountains are able to provide - mosses, lichens, shrubs, grass. A special treat is mineral deposits.
The hooves of the mountain goats are bifurcated, while in the center they are soft, and on the edges they are hard and hard, this allows them to distribute their weight and stay even on the smallest mountain ledges
