Goats communicate with each other by bleating. Young kids stay close-by their mothers and are identified by their bleat.
They are intelligent, curious animals with an inquisitive nature.
Goats have rectangular pupils. This gives them a vision for 320 to 340 degrees around them without having to move (compared to humans with 160-210)!
They are ruminant animals. Their stomach consists of four different chambers.
Worldwide, more people eat and drink milk from goats than any other animal. In earlier centuries, goats were often used to nurse babies.
