More information

Although Mountain Goats (or Rocky Mountain Goats) are not truly goats, they are found in mountains.

They usually stay above the tree-line and might climb to elevations of 3,000 meters. By staying near rocky cliffs, mountain goats avoid most potential predators.

These sure-footed animals are well built for life on the steep slopes. They can spread their cloven hooves when necessary, and pads on their inner feet prevent slipping. Declaws, at the back of their feet, offer additional traction.

Kids are born in late Spring and can run and climb within a few hours. They generally follow their mothers for the first year.
