    It's such an odd sight because no one would guess they are physically built for climbing. Who said, you need opposable thumbs for gripping. I think it was, August.

    Just for the sake of interest.....

    'The bodies of mountain goats are machines built to climb. Their hooves have a hard outer case that allows them to dig into almost invisible ledges. Soft pads on the bottoms of their hooves mold to contours in the mountain’s surface like climbing shoes. And while their bodies appear thick and muscular from the side, mountain goats are actually slender when viewed head on; this shape is conducive to maintaining balance on narrow protrusions.'

    I have a friend who has two goats and they like nothing better than chewing the paint of cars. They like roof paint the best.
