Mountain goat

Oreamnos americanus

The mountain goat , also known as the Rocky Mountain goat, is a large-hoofed mammal found only in North America. Despite its vernacular name, it is not a member of ''Capra'', the genus that includes the wild goat, ''Capra aegagrus'', from which the domestic goat is derived. A subalpine to alpine species, it is a sure-footed climber commonly seen on cliffs and ice.
