Goats

/Goats

African pygmy goats are originally from Africa but were introduced to other areas by whalers who found that they were easily transported, and were a great source of milk and meat on long voyages. Their colours can range from white and caramel to grey and black, most being a salt-and-pepper patterned, these are called agouti. Pygmy goats and Nigerian dairy goats share a common ancestor which is the West African Dwarf. The main threat for pygmy goats is their popularity for the pet trade but other than that they are not currently threatened.
