Alpine Ibex


These goats are remarkable climbers, using complicated hooves that are well-adapted. They can climb the steepest cliff walls, often doing so gracefully and with no sign of vertigo. They do this to track down vegetation that often grows in the nooks and crannies of mountains, but it’s also a useful skill to have when trying to escape predators. They have been known to frequently climb the Cingino Dam in Italy to seek out salt-licks.
