The mountain goat (Oreamnos americanus missoulae) was not native to Colorado but has become successfully established through introductions. The results of a two-year investigation of food habits indicated that grasses and grass-like plants composed the greater part of the diet throughout the year. Kobresia (Kobresia bellardi), Scribner wheatgrass (Agropyron scribneri), blue grasses (Poa sp.), clover (Trifolium dasyphyllum and T. nanum) and sedge (Carex sp.) were the preferred plants.
