Abstract: The shaggy white Mountain Goat (Oreamnos americanus) is in many respects a peculiar beast. This muscular, plodding mountaineer is a product of the Pleistocene ice age whose snowy colour makes it well adapted for escaping detection in wintry landscapes. No other hoofed mammal in North America, and few outside it, are so superbly adapted to steep terrain and severe winters. Though often called a “goat-antelope,” it is neither. It has no close relatives in North America, and its closest kin in Europe and Asia are not very similar. British Columbia is the heartland of Mountain Goats and contains more than half of the world’s population. But because of its lofty, remote haunts, it is the least familiar of our hoofed mammals (ungulates).
