Goats That Climb Trees


Goats can climb trees! In Morocco goats climb Argan trees to consume delicious berries which are similar to the olives. Local farmers follow these goats because fruit of the Argan tree has the nut inside which is used to make delicious cooking oil. Interesting fact (besides the climbing goats) is that Morocco goats spit or excrete these nuts, which then farmers use to make the Argan oil. However, Argan trees are close to extinction because of the tree wood harvesting. Some organizations are trying to promote Argan oil to became marketing success in order to preserve these weird trees. We all hope that these goats will continue their climbing adventures!

Smart goats!! Who says goats are not supposed to be able to climb trees? It looks strange though, especially if you've never seen it before.

I can imagine the weird convo with his friends:

Climbing Goat: Hey guys I'm super hungry.
Other Goats: Wait for the farmer, he'll come by noon.
Climbing Goat: Screw that, I'm gonna climb that tree.
Other Goats: What? You crazy!
Climbing Goat: No, I'm F@cking hungry!
OG: U'll die!!
CG: Well, that's a chance I'm willing to take.
