Goats in Trees!

, ,

In Morocco, who would have imagined? goats make their living climbing Argan trees (Argania spinosa) in order to devour their seeds. Traditionally, the undigested seeds then excreted by goats were collected by the natives and pressed to produce Argan oil which is used for cooking and as a salad oil, as well as cosmetically on skin and hair, and even medicinally.

You might suspect the photo was Photoshopped, but here are another 16 pictures of goats in trees.

Those devils also climb into olive trees. I suppose the Mediterranean is the only region in which one must put a lock on one’s treehouse.

I wonder how hungry the first fellow was who decided to press goat poop in the hopes of tasty goat-poop oil. (Apu voice) “You can REALLY taste the goat poop!”
