• Goats, which is not the knowledge of fear of heights
Each type of animal has a special niche in the environment in which this same species survives as he can. Well, in this case the wild mountain goats took very strange and almost inaccessible to other animals niche - high and dangerous rock cliffs. And these goats are not crazy, because the steep mountains provide them with many benefits, including protection from ground predators, the food delicious and minerals that they love to lick.
Severe wind blown these rocks, snow and sweep exposing the rigid grass and mineral salts, which are those for goats true delicacy.
Many of the goats presented here have been photographed in the US Rocky Mountains.
This type is actually a mountain antelope, but some "climbers" in these photos, for example, the Ibex and chamois are members of the genus of these goats.
All these animals have special adaptations that allow them to roam the steep slopes and cliffs of its mountain habitat.
In contrast to the horses' hooves, the hoof of these goats are doubled, so the animals can better distribute the weight.
The hooves are soft in the middle, while their edges are hard and solid, which allows the animal to "grab" of any, even the tiniest cracks or uneven rocky surface.
Some of them even have hard and rough skin between the pads of the hooves that help them better grasp at the rock surface.
