Goats That Climb Trees

in Nature Facts by

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!

  1. 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.

  2. I wish I had a climbing goat for a pet that’d be amazing to own one Id be the coolest person in my town for having a climbing goat. 😀

  3. Hey guys, goats in trees is nice and all, but find a video of some that faint(although crossbreeding does’nt seem wise).Goas have good entertainment value.

  4. What strange and looney ludicrous is this?! These goats are deranged and delirious..I bet the camera man flipped out to lunch when he saw this.

  5. Well, now, since you are into learning. These are goats in Morocco. They climb Argan trees to consume delicious berries which are similar to the olives from the Argan tree which has the nut inside which is used to make delicious cooking, and dipping oil. There are old Moroccan ladies who de-shell the nuts and the guy who owns the plantation, keeps them working, pays them well, and gives them a share in his business. They have been able to buy their own homes, etc. One lady who is around 85 has been doing it since she was a young girl.
