    Default The most amazing feat of animal dexterity!

    I have always known goats to be very agile but this is on a different level altogether!

    I have seen similar (maybe the same) kind of mountain goat in the Swiss Alps very many years agp = not a dam wall but EXTREME rock inclines.
    They ARE amazing!

    I took this picture while climbing Montserrat in Spain. In the top circle are two rock climbers using ropes. In the bottom circles a small herd of endangered Iberian Ibex just hanging out like they are having a stroll inh the park. That patchy coat is incredible camo and if they don't move, it is near impossible to spot them. The ease with which they scale near vertical cliffs, I think, is only matched by our own Klipspringer.

    Edit: Sorry, I see the lower right circle contains just rock, damn glasses must've had a spot on them
