Vocablet of the Day: Sate

Today’s Vocablet features a remarkably sure-footed animal that can scale unbelievable cliffs in search of its favorite mineral.

The sate (Mountain Goats) Vocablet is about the incredible ability of mountain goats to climb nearly smooth, almost vertical surfaces to satiate their craving for salt.  The goats climb rock faces and human-made dams, licking the salt from the surface of the stones.

National Geographic has an article on these sodium-craving creatures, including pictures so amazing that they look like they were altered in Photoshop.  Don’t look down!
