Bighorn sheep walking along the wall of a damSee those dots on the side of the wall in the photos? Those are bighorn sheep walking across the near vertical wall surface.

These are acrobatic animals with an amazing sense of balance and definitely no fear of heights!

These photos are taken by Adriano Migliorati at the 160-foot-tall (49-meter-tall) Cingino Dam in Italy. The goats are attracted to the dam’s salt-crusted stones. Grazing animals don’t get enough of the mineral in their vegetarian diets. This is one dangerous way to keep your salt intake accurate.
