Mountain Goat Photos
Mountain goats are well suited for the alpine habitat for which they are adapted. The billies (males) and the nannies (females) sport black horns, a white beard (though the billies do have longer horns and beards) and wear lovely white double-layer wool coats, shedding the outer coat for the warmer days of summer. Nannies can have the appearance of being run ragged by their kids (young mountain goats) in the spring, as they shed their outer coat more slowly than their male counterparts.
Mountain goats kids are born in spring (May-June) after a six month gestation period. Nannies deliver their kids on an isolated ledge. Within hours of birth kids are trying out their spreadable cloven hooves on the steep cliff-sides and ledges of their range and practicing the agility that allows them to elude predators.
