Day Four: Mountain Goat!
Kickstarter Animal of the Day: Mountain Goat!
This drawing of the Mountain Goat is from one of our afterschool workshops. When we teach children about animals through art and dance, we talk about the different ways animals move and we draw the animal to understand it better. The Mountain Goat is unique to North America, and it's not related to the domestic goat, but to antelopes and cattle. It is very nimble and has dewclaws that help with traction on the mountains. It can jump from one rock to the other very easily. When the nannies (female Mountain Goats) fight they lower their heads and circle one another.
