This extraordinary picture shows the animal world's equivalent of a gold rush - the quest for the fruit of the argan tree.

Goats are so desperate for the tasty meal that they will even climb tall trees to get to it.

And with two dozen more eagerly gathered in anticipation of their turn on the tree, the exasperated goatherd pictured in the background is in for a long wait.
