      This is easy. This tree is too thin and too dry and the branches will crack easily and it can not hold the weight of a goat than can go up to 200 pounds depending on if pregnant or not. So take a photo of a tree, then take many photos of goats, with computer technology, you copy and past the goats on different branches of the tree to make it look like they are in a tree. I know goats can and will try to climb a tree that is low, but all these goats on one thin weak branched tree and with modern technology? Who will fall for this gig. Not me.

      If you notice all the goats are white and only a few a brown and a few are black and white. So why so many white goats? Well to show off that the computer has some good photographic technological touches that can make any thing seem outragous. Yes a goat can climb a tree, but all these of the same color on thin weak branches? No way.

      If you enlarge the pics, you can see most of the goats are standing on platforms made of branches and cord. Almost none of the close shots show their feet!
      Unless these are 'nest-building goats', these pictures were staged!!

      I have been to Morocco (last year) and seen the goats in the Argon Trees. This is true. I also took photos but we were on a bus and it was difficult to get a good shot. I was amazed at such a sight. I promise this is no Photoshop trick. If you don't believe it, go to Morocco and see for yourself.

      By the way, these are not 200 pound goats... this breed of goat is much smaller. More like a medium-sized dog. Also, these trees are not very tall. I remember the trees being about 20 feet high at the tallest point.

      You might want to research this a little further before posting as 'authentic'. The locals often plant goats -- babies -- in the argan tree for tourists as they drive by on the way to, or from, the coast. I saw it myself, and have pictures of before they pulled the kids out of the tree -- with rope collars - and took off with them when police drove by. At the very least the women, and it's only women, do not grind the seeds from the goat droppings. It's a fabulous tasting oil and there are some great cosmetics made with them. You are doing those women from the collectives such a great disservice by posting such b.s.....

      Sorry, the last part, re: goat droppings on is not meant for you per se. Yahoo News picked up the photo and added the last part into their caption!
      Great picture though, and I enjoy mine thoroughly!

      Hi Pffft,
      I know that the kid that brings the goat to eat in the three might do this in order to have the arganttree to have the pitt for oil. I don't think it is only fo tourist's pictures.
      but by the way I'm a bit surprised (Am I?) that Yahoo took my picture without asking for any permission !
