Meet the Goats of Morocco who Climb Trees!

Meet the goats of Morocco up in the trees! Where these goats are found? In south-west Morocco, you will find dozens of goats hanging out on trees, 30 feet above the ground, munching on some tasty fruit. The Moroccan goats are skilled climbers and are known for climbing up the mountains in search of food. What they eat? They like to eat the fruit of Argan tree, which ripens each year in June. They just go up to feast upon them. The Argan tree grows to 8-10 meters high and lives up to 150–200 years. The trees have rough trunks and thorny branches. Nonetheless, goats have adapted themselves and are climbing on these trees for centuries. What do they look like? The goats of this region have two toes which they spread out, balancing the soles of their feet, helping them to grip the bark. Goats also have two vestigial toes higher up their legs called dewclaws. These are truly amazing!

Helping Animals in Winter

Helping Animals in Winter Although January has started, it is still winter in most parts of the world and as much as we want to stay warm, animals desire the same. Here are a few steps to help animals stay safe in this cold season: 1. Keep your pets indoors as much as you can. 2. Knit or buy sweaters for your dogs or cats to keep them warm. They can be found online easily and cost cheaper that what one can expect.  3. Check under the hood of your car before you start driving. There are cats who wish to seek shelter in them. (Check picture below) 4. Protect your cat/dog's paws from the salt that is used to melt ice.  5. Increase the amount of food that you normally give to your pet.  6. Dry your pets off before they come in from the cold outside.  7. It is not only a matter for your pet, but look out for strays and the least you can do to help those is either get them sweaters, take them indoors temporarily or build an outdoor warm shelter for them.  Spread the word and let's keep our animals warm and safe.
