There is a world somewhere between reality and fiction. Although ignored by many, it is very real and so are those living in it. This forum is about the natural world. Here, wild animals will be heard and respected. The forum offers a glimpse into an unknown world as well as a room with a view on the present and the future. Anyone able to speak on behalf of those living in the emerald forest and the deep blue sea is invited to join.

Goats and sheep are among the ungulates classified under the subfamily of Caprinæ within the family of Bovidæ

Here are some news items I collected in the past week regarding caprines:

- Spain's capital city, Madrid, was flooded by a huge flock of sheep migrating to southern pastures:

- In the northernmost Emirate of Ras Al Khaimah, a goat got stuck for 5 days on Jabal Jais, which is the highest mountain in the UAE, located in the Ru'us Al-Jibal (literally "Heads of Mountains"; the northwestern part of the Hajar Mountains, located in the Musandam Peninsula south of the Strait of Hormuz), but because the summit is in Oman, the highest peak in the UAE is that of Jabal Yibir or Jebel Al-Mebrah nearby. It then got rescued by Ras Al Khaimah Civil Defence:
