African Pygmy Goat - Capra aegagrus hircus

African pygmy goats are a small domestic breed of goat. They are social animals and live in herds. Like other goats they are great climbers and love to jump on rocks and logs. These goats are mainly black, white, grey and brown in colour. Both sexes have horns but only the males have beards. Pygymy Goats are also very smart and curious.

  8. There is something special about goats. At fairs and on farm tours, everybody always gravitates toward them. Tiny ones like these are especially wonderful.

  19. Delightful images, Bob, of a very endearing species. I'm always amazed when I see photos of goats that have climbed trees. It seems so crazy that I think I'd have to see it happen to believe it! My very best wishes - - - Richard
