If you are terrified of heights like I am, you definitely won’t be jealous of these goats anytime soon. Using moves that would make any rock climber jealous, these death-defying goats expertly make their way up an almost vertical dam. Photographer Paolo Seimandi, 34, captured the amusing moment when the herd of Alpine Ibexes decided to scale the brick wall in the Gran Paradiso National Park in Northern Italy.
Can you spot what’s on this dam?
Look closer. Do you see it now?
You can definitely see that there is something on the walls of this dam.
Photographer Paolo Seimandi, 34, captured the stunning moment a herd of Alpine Ibexes climbed up a dam in Gran Paradiso National Park in Northern Italy.
The gravity-defying goats typically live in very steep and rocky terrain at altitudes of up to 4,600m and have no fear of falling whether climbing up or down the dam wall.
The goats aren’t doing it to show off.
It is thought the goats are actually grazing, licking the stones for their salts and minerals.
This looks impossible to get traction on. It’s amazing they are able to hold on.
They’re holding on, getting the minerals they need.
This little guy was a little curious and decided to check out the camera.

These goats are absolutely insane, but it really comes down to survival of the fittest. They are able to grip onto the rocks with their hooves and they can scale extremely steep cliffs and dams to get what they need in order to survive. This is pretty impressive to say the least.
