    If you thought that was nailbiting, what about a baby Ibex running down a near vertical mountain to escape a fox? 👉 👈

    @Johnathan Schoenborn you are wrong. compounds are molecules. also, the narrator would know. proffessor brian edward cox has several degrees and doctorates and such forth in physics and a few in chemistry as well.

    thats so awesome and I more and more am finding myself with the urge to devote myself to animals, and stopping deforestation, the whole shabang. We need to put a stop to the WHALE MASSACRES happening in Japan. They are incredibly loving and smart creatures. They trap and slaughter the whales and dolphins, many of which are pregnant.

    Maybe sometime can clear this up for me. The title/description of this video says the ibex defy gravity by climbing a dam. The video clearly shows them climbing the dam. But the narrator says the desire for salt and minerals is so strong that they will "scale it down to get it" is it just a bad translation or mistake?

    Couldn't they just put some mineral blocks out for them? It would save on the wear and tear of the dam. And... thats an Ibex? They look like my goats.
