It’s an undeniable fact: mountain goats are way cooler than even the most daring and skilful climbers and acrobats. These animals are capable of climbing up on dizzyingly high cliffs and trees seemingly without any trouble at all. With more bravery (or is it recklessness?) than you would expect from such an apparently docile animal, they can be seen scrambling up near vertical mountain slopes. They have absolutely no fear, for they possess an amazing sense of balance, and their little hooves hold onto tiny ledges in a way which seems to defy gravity itself.
We chose 22 photographs to prove to you why exactly these animals are true miracles of nature. And just look how graceful and beautiful they are against the backdrop of the cliffs!
