Alpha's Tale


Mountain Goats are animals mentioned, though never appearing, in the Survivors series.[1]

Description

Mountain Goats in Survivors are not described.
Mountain Goats in real life are described as having distinctive beards,[2] a long face, black horns, a short tail,[3] and long[4] double-layered[5] white coats and cloven feet for traversing the rugged mountain terrain. They live in America's mountains and alpines, from Alaska to the Rocky Mountains. Their coats aid in camouflage in the snow white environment. These herd animals are nimble and powerful, with two toes balancing themselves to grip and climb.[6] Each year they molt their matted coats in the spring and thicken again by winter. Billies (males) and nannies (females) can have sharp curling black horns measuring 6-11 inches.[7]

History

In the Novellas Arc

Alpha's Tale

When Pup hunts a weasel, he thinks of how in the Ice Wind, he will bring many deer, elk, and mountain goats for his Pack.


Trivia

  • Despite their misleading name, Mountain Goats are not really goats, but really a close relative. They are in the antelope family.[8]
