Video: Watch Some Moroccan Goats, Straight Chillin’ in a Tree
If you're unimpressed by this video of goats in trees, you're either Moroccan and this is simply old hat, or you're someone with ridiculously high standards. Like, say, standards higher than thirty feet, which is how high these goats can climb trees in search of food.
Argan goats, named after the trees they climb in search of their preferred dessert, the Argan fruit, have been climbing trees in southwestern Morocco for centuries. Photographer Michael Chinnici took this video (along with a few sweet photos) on a recent trip to their neck of the woods.
According to Chinnici’s blog, kernels from the Argan fruit drop to the ground in the goats’ poop and the whole kit and caboodle are pressed into oil by locals for use in cooking and skin treatments.
Thank you, Michael Chinnici! Without you, we couldn’t have the best kind of Wednesday: a Wednesday where we get to watch goats hang out in trees.
