You've seen goats on a farm and read about them in stories, but what kind of an animal is a goat? Goats are mammals. This means that they have fur, give birth to live babies, and are warm-blooded. All goats have a long body, short legs, and a short tail. They belong to the family bovidae. This family also includes deer, cows, sheep and antelope. They are social animals but they are not flock oriented.
Interesting facts:

  • Goats were first domesticated by man in 10,000 B. C., and were the first animals to be used for milk by humans.

  • There are 210 different breeds of goats and over 450 million around the world. China has the most goats with over 170 million.

  • Goats live to be 8 to 12 years old, but in some cases they can live to be 15 years old. The life span of a goat is about that of a dog.

  • They are also very agile and some can jump over 5 feet.

  • Goats don’t like to get wet and will seek shelter when it’s raining.

  • Coffee was first discovered by goat herders when they noticed the animals having an unusual amount of energy after eating coffee beans.

  • Both the male and female goats can have a beard.
