The most agile of all mountain mammals, the mountain goat moves confidently on rocky ledges where they are safe from predators. Only when they wander away to graze in mountain meadows they become vulnerable to grizzlies, wolves or coyotes. Large eagles prey on the calves. About Goat
Diet High mountain vegetation; primarily grasses, mosses, lichens, herbs and tender parts of woody plants. Habitat Found only on the steep slopes of rocky mountain range where it meets the forest. The mountain goat is sure-footed and agile due to its hooves with cushioned skid-proof pads for grip.
