FUN FACT: Goats can climb trees

These Moroccan goats have taken to the trees. Although I remember growing up with the knowledge that goats were good at climbing mountains, I had no idea they were so adept at climbing trees.  But scientists have been studying their hooves.  Goat hooves are shaped like parabolas with hard outside shells and softer soles.  Their two toes can even move independently to give them a better grip.
