This is a Klipspringer (Oreotragus oreotragus), a small species of antelope. They primarily live in mountainous areas, and it’s hooves are designed like that to allow it to stand on even the tiniest outcrop of rock.
its on its widdle tippy toes
the underside of their hooves is also quite rubbery and allows for better grip— it’s reported they can land safely on rock as wide as a dime.
also they mate for life and always stay by their mate. one will keep watch while another eats and are generally the cutest little things

Just a reminder:the natural diet of these birds is BONES. Not just bone marrow; actual bone shards. They pick up huge freaking bones from carcasses and drop them onto rocks until they get spiky pieces and then they swallow them. Their stomach acid dissolves bone.
look me in the eye and tell me that’s not a fucking dragon
And they aren’t naturally red like that. That’s self-applied makeup. They find the reddest earth they can to work into their feathers as a status symbol.
And they don’t scavenge other parts of carcases, just the bones. 85-90% of their diet is exclusively bone. Hence why it’s only a myth that these birds would just pick up whole lambs and carry them off. It’s not true, but in German they’re still called Lämmergeier as a result.

It’s implied in the books that he’s not well groomed, not that he just has a simple case of greasy hair. I mean, I have greasy hair and can’t get away with not washing it for a day. Which is why I do wash it every day, or if I decide to not wash it, I know I’m not going to be seen in public. So the fact that his greasy hair is one of his trademarks tells me he doesn’t care.
I know I say this over and over again, but it baffles me that people don’t know or get this. He was neglected as a kid and he was poor and abused and overall, that has a huge impact on a person’s self esteem and sense of self worth. People who don’t think much of themselves tend to also not think much of their appearance. They don’t see the reason to put the effort in. It’s not worth it because they are not worth it. Of course, they would never say so outright because it’s not a conscious decision. It just is.
And as much as Snape gives off that narcissistic attitude, that is merely a front. He uses that superiority and his natural intelligence to intimidate but unfortunately, as we see in the scenes with Dumbledore where he is most himself (because Dumbledore is legit the only person who knows Snape’s deal until Harry does at the end), we see he’s very insecure.
Snape really does hate himself too. That’s not even exaggerating. Like he knows he’s a shitty person. His worst memory is of him calling Lily a Mudblood because he knows what a shit thing that was to do. He isn’t stupid. And then to top it all off he gets her killed. When Lily dies he actually says “I wish I was dead” and tbh, he cared more about her than he did himself. The only reason Dumbledore uses Lily to get Snape to work for him is because he knows that Snape won’t do it because it’s the right thing and you know why? Because in Snape’s mind shitty people like him don’t do the right thing. That mindset might not be very logical to some people but it’s something that is true for so many people who end up in situations like his. It’s part of his personal belief system which is not an easy thing to change. And Dumbles also knows that he won’t even do it to save his own skin because he’s so low at that point that he doesn’t give a shit about himself at all. He’s better off dead because that’s what shitty people like him deserve.
And I know I just went on a tangent so I might as well finish and say that Snape haters who go on and on about Snape being a shitty person don’t seem to get that Snape agrees with them one hundred percent. That’s why he is the way he is.
