在摩洛哥南部的半沙漠地區,山羊常被責備吃掉堅果樹果實。但研究發現,山羊吃了果實一段時間後會把種子吐出來,順便在這植物難生長的地區四處播種。

in the semi-desert area of southern morocco, local goats are often blamed for eating the nuts of the native argan trees. however, these goats don’t like the seed of the argan and they would spit out the seeds as they travel around. this way the seeding gain a better survival chance in this tough area.
