Argan (Argania spinosa)

No, these are not a strange breed of four legged monkey. The animals in this picture are goats in Southern Morocco feeding on the fruit of an Argan tree. I first became interested in this tree when I was introduced to the oil that is made from the Argan nut. It is a highly valued oil with similar properties to Olive oil. In Morocco the oil is extracted by hand which makes it a bit expensive and difficult to come by.
