    BTW, goats vision allow for a 320-340 degree panorama... a result of a horizontal rectangular pupil...

    that helps goats detect and escape predators... but a "soulless" appearance to a goat's gaze that is related to the pupil's shape seems to be among the reasons that goats have been linked to the devil...

    I've climbed in the British Columbia Rockies above 12,000 feet. The Rocky Mountain Goat is amazing how they can spring from small ledge to small ledge for their size. An adult male is about 300 pounds. Also, hiking in the Pyrenees Mountains of Spain resides the spectacular Chamois, they are very elusive.

    Great images & info, Izzy . . . & how do they manage to effortlessly spring from one pin-head size perch to another?

    Goat Hooves Confer Ninja-like Climbing Abilities... other sources answer similarly but this one citing an analysis of a single video of a mountain goat looks at the mechanics of that goat's climbing...

    Have you seen the tree climbing goats in Morocco? When I first saw photos of this, I assumed they were photoshopped...............nope!
