[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
La cabra blanca (Oreamnos americanus), también llamada cabra de las Rocasas, es una especie de mamífero artiodáctilo de la subfamilia Caprinae endémica de Norteamérica (Canadá, EE. UU.). Vive en zonas altas alejada de los depredadores, aunque el puma y el oso gris pueden predar sobre ella. Es una excelente trepadora que se alimenta principalmente de hierba.

The Mountain Goat (Oreamnos americanus), also known as the Rocky Mountain Goat, is a large-hoofed mammal found only in North America. Despite its vernacular name, it is not a member of Capra, the genus of true goats. It resides at high elevations and is a sure-footed climber, often resting on rocky cliffs that predators cannot reach.
