Hi, my name is Leo. I am a mountain goat which means I live on a huge mountain with my herd. Have you ever asked the question how mountain goats are not afraid to be so high up climbing the edge of a mountain? Well I'm sorry because I can't answer that question for you. Why, you might ask because I am PETRIFIED of heights!
She walks over to the footprint and freezes, “Wolves.”
Yes, yes, yes, yes, I am on the edge of a mountain right now, but as you can see I am not that far up the mountain. In fact I even measured the distance between me and the ground and it is only 4 inches.
The only problem with being afraid of heights while being a mountain goat is that the rest of my herd is always so much higher than me. They are always so high on the mountain that they can be very hard to communicate with and I can't even tell what they're doing from down here. Sometimes one of my family members will come down here to me and tell me what they're doing, but most times I’m just forgotten about.
Most days I just walk around the ground and eat grasses all alone, but at least I have my rabbit friend called Sandy. Most days Sandy is the only animal I get to talk to.Other than eating grasses, me and Sandy like to go walk around trying to discover new things. Like this one time we found a thing that Sandy said she heard from some fish gossip that this one mermaid likes to brush her hair with it. Once we find these new things we usually just take them back to my cave and hang out there.
Unlike most days we got bored and decided to walk further into the unknown land. As we were walking along looking at the ground for new exciting things I happened to see a footprint in the mud. Then I realized what that footprint could have come from, an animal we hadn’t seen for a long time. So with my whole body shaking I walked up to Sandy and asked her,
Sandy, do you know what the footprint came from?
We have to go tell the herd!
We both immediately start running back to the mountain.
