Goat – Capra aegagrus hircus
The domestic goat is a subspecies of goat domesticated from the wild goat of southwest Asia and Eastern Europe. There are over 300 distinct breeds of goat. Goats are one of the oldest domesticated species, and have been used for their milk, meat, hair, and skins over much of the world. Female goats are referred to as “does” or “nannies”, males are called “bucks” or “billies” and juveniles of both sexes are called “kids”. Their horns are made of living bone surrounded by keratin and other proteins, and are used for defense, dominance, and territoriality.
