Mountain goats are white and bearded, with long hair, black hooves, and short black horns that curve slightly backwards. They live on rocky crags at or above timberline, where they feed on high-mountain vegetation. Their home range is 3-6 miles (4.8-9.7 km). In the wild, mountain goats can live 12 years or more. They can be seen in the Black Hills of South Dakota and in 5 national parks: Glacier, Olympic, Mt. Rainier, Banff, and Jasper.
