Have You Ever Seen A Tree Full Of Goats?

Have you ever seen a tree full of goats? It's a sight you might actually come across in southwest Morocco. Here you'll find the endemic argan tree, Argania spinosa. Each June, the fruit on the argan tree ripens, and goats can't resist trying to gobble it up. Goats will climb the trees up high and out to thin branches in order to eat the fruit. Once they eat the fruit, the people of the region make argan oil from the seeds in the goats' excrement. Their remarkable climbing ability is due to their two-pronged hooves that have soft centers that mold to whatever the goat is climbing on.
