Morocco’s climbing Goats are real phenomena! They climb the Aragan Trees because they like to eat the fruit - similar to an olive. Farmers follow the herds of goats as they move from tree to tree because the fruit of the tree has a nut inside, which the goats can’t digest, so they spit it up or excrete it and the farmers collect them. The nut contains 1-3 kernels - ground to make argan oil used in cooking and cosmetics.
