Ibex Are Much Better at Climbing Than You, and We’ve Got Proof

We’ve seen nature do some unbelievable things, but this is next level. Ibex, some of the most impressive creatures when it comes to climbing mountains, need salt for bone growth, and without it, their nervous systems and muscles can’t function. In this region of Italy, the mountain goats need to climb to the top of a large dam to get to the salt stored in the rocks. A Herculean feat for humans, but a simple climb for the ibex. Check out this amazing video of a fascinating creature going to work. —ML
