  1. If you thought that was nailbiting, what about a baby Ibex running down a near vertical mountain to escape a fox? 👉 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vTSVzeOdj8A 👈

  2. 51 million people clicked to watch an animal climbed a steep slope mountain… But deep down we all clicked for the "what if" Grand finale! 🤫

  3. Damn they kinda piss me off a lil bit, like i have a certain level of wanting to put them on the grill just cause they're different.
