Mountain Goat

Here’s some serious cute: A mountain goat nanny and kid at Glacier Bay National Park in Alaska. Mountain goats are not true goats at all but belong to the antelope family. The hooves of mountain goats consist of two toes that can move independently from each other, allowing for its stunning agility on steep terrain. Photo by Richard Nelson, National Park Service. 🐑🐑

An incredible scene for two hikers in Glacier National Park in Montana. The road was closed to vehicular traffic (it was winter after all) and the hikers, Daniel Wilder and a friend according to the email, found this mountain lion and ram.  What took place is obvious: the cougar had the ram in its jaw and the struggle between the two led to the pair falling from the cliff above the road.
