4. The Mountain Goat

Imagine that every cliffside you've ever seen was as accessible as a flight of stars. That's the superpower mountain goats show off all day long in the North American Rockies. The agility of this animal is legendary, and there are many videos out there that showcase their talent for goofing around at jaw-dropping heights. Their hooves act like suction cups in tight places, allowing them to remain surefooted even on dizzyingly steep rock faces. Most of us have to be confined to wandering around on the horizontal plane, but these guys have unlocked the secrets of the vertical world.
