Why don’t mountain goats fall?

    Mountain goats are actually not goats at all, but a member of the antelope family. Their beard is simalar to that of a male goat, but is acutaally an extension of the mane, as opposed to chin-hair growth.
    Mountain goats are very well equipped for where they live, and what they do! Their stability can best be attributed to their hooves which is shaped like a “V”. The two “toes” can move independently and thus give the goat added stability. The hoof also has an extra layer of padding which provides additional traction and acts as a suction cup when applied to hard surfaces.
