The mountain goat’s feet are well-suited for climbing steep, rocky slopes with pitches exceeding 60°, with inner pads that provide traction and cloven hooves that can spread apart. The cliffs they spend most of their lives on confer numerous benefits, including protection from land-bound predators, foraging, and access to mineral licks.
Deidara, did you ever have any mountain goats up in Iwagakure? (Loving this blog, btw. Keep up the good work. :) )
