Why Do Goats Climb?
Goats have evolved just like all the other animals, and climbing happens to be one of those traits passed down through generations. Goats could not get enough food and nutrition from grass and sparse vegetation, so they learned to climb trees to reach the leaves and fruit. Mountain goats had to climb to higher elevations to forage for food and mate. If you have ever owned a goat, you have probably experienced this natural behavior.
