Grazing goats of Morocco

Moroccan goats are not like normal goats. They climb to the tops of the trees, which measure up to 36 feet tall, using their cloven feet which are well suited for climbing steep places 

Moroccan goats use their cloven hooves to climb the branches of the Argan tree, they eat its fruit, spitting out the seeds, which helps to propagate the trees.

The fruit's pulp is what attracts the goats to these Argan trees. The farmers encourage the goats to climb the trees as soon as the fruit is ripe. 

Southwestern Morocco doesn't get a lot of rain, so sometimes the only food the goats can find is at the tops of the trees

Local farmers encourage and even help the goats climb these 36 feet tall trees, after they eat the pulp of the fruit the animals spit out seeds which helps speed up the process of producing Argan oil.

Far from just a single goat climbing a single tree, the animals tend to swarm into the branches in number
