Alpine Ibexes are amazing creatures. We’ve seen photos of wild goats like these, unlike the farmyard variety, standing majestically on a mountain top but we don’t often see how they got there. As this video shows, these goats can scale incredible heights and at near-vertical angles as well. You may be wondering (or not) what made me go to YouTube looking for goats climbing a dam? Well a friend shared a link on Facebook to an article featuring goats standing on sheer cliff faces. I figured there had to be a video of this somewhere. NatGeo Wild has a video with different types of mountain goats climbing, jumping and fighting; but the narrator started doing a voice over to get laughs. As if watching the animals wasn’t enough of an attention-grabber. Who wouldn’t be impressed considering they don’t have things we humans need to climb like arms, hands and toes?
It’s familiar territory for the wild alpine goats who live in steep rocky terrain at high altitudes. Fortunately for us some people caught the moment when a herd of ibexes scaled the near vertical stone dam in the Gran Paradiso National Park in Italy.
