Re: Raptors climbing trees?
Until I saw the YouTube bit with bunches of goats in a huge tree, I
have been arguing that goats were tree climbers!<<<
That of course is my point exactly; goats are NOT tree climbers. Oh
sure, they can (and do), but at this point the behavior plays no
significant roll in their evolutionary success. If that were to
somehow change in the future then whatever the selective process is
will probably encourage specialization to their incipient arboreality
that would be evident in their morphology.
