Domestic Goats

Capra aegagrus hircus


The domestic goat is a subspecies of goat domesticated from the wild goat of southwest Asia and Eastern Europe. The goat is a member of the Bovidae family and is closely related to the sheep as both are in the goat-antelope subfamily Caprinae. There are over three hundred distinct breeds of goat.[


These were taken at a petting zoo in South Carolina. The video shows some small goats playing. Standing up, dancing towards each other and butting heads.

Thank you Alice. I think it's so funny how the small goats seem to dance.
