It's amazing

how these guys manage to get around so well on rock with hooves.

Member?

Has this kid joined SP yet? To share his unique knowledge of how to get around in the mountains perhaps?

Good one, Rob!! No, seriously, if only ibexes and chamois could talk!! Have you seen the pictures of alpine goats climbing up the wall of the Grande Dixence artificial lake just for the sake of finding tiny patches of grass? It's simply incredible! How do they do that??

Re: Member?

It's all in the feet, Eric. Not kidding ...

The mountain goat's feet are well-suited for climbing steep, rocky slopes with pitches exceeding 60°, with inner pads that provide traction and cloven hooves that can spread apart.

They're a cool climbing companion, surely!

Very nice shot, Adam!

Such a good catch of that adorable baby mountain goat!
Cheers,
Eric
