Mountain Goats

Oreamnos americanus

Mountain Goats can only be found in Western North America. They have long wool coats that shed in the spring and summer. Their horns are pointed and slender. They never shed their horns. These hardy animals are right at home on steep slopes with at 50-60% grade, (home stairs are at 30%). They have split hooves and strong legs, keeping them safe from their predators on the sheer mountainsides.
