Mountain Goat

The Mountain Goat, despite its suggestive name, doesn't actually belong to the goat family. The 'Mountain' part of its name, however, is true. The Mountain (or Western) Goat is a unique species found only in North America that is usually seen on rocky slopes or perched on seemingly inaccessible ledges that provide protection from predators. Surefooted and wary, it's a treat for passing motorists when one or more goats shows up on the side of a highway to graze.
