Mountain Goats, Jasper national Park, Alberta, Canada 21

Description : Mountain goats usually live high on mountain cliffs, avoiding predators with their death-defying, cliff-walking stunts.
Living in such difficult terrain is the mountain goat’s survival strategy, a place where predators such as wolves and cougars can’t make a living. Should a threat appear, they’re prepared to clamber to the relative safety of small ledges. They manage this with small, pointed hooves with a roughed pad that provide good grip. But their small feet and short legs are not well suited for moving through deep snow.
