Tiny Bagot goat born at Edinburgh Zoo

14/05/2022 in Edinburgh Zoo

A tiny baby goat, known as a kid, was born at the Royal Zoological Society of Scotland’s (RZSS) Edinburgh Zoo on 3 May to first time parents Patrick and Janice.

The male youngster, yet to be named by keepers at the wildlife conservation charity, has been delighting visitors as he enjoys exploring his enclosure with mum, Janice, by his side.

Bagot goats are believed to be Britain’s oldest species of goat and are now finding a new role as important conservation grazers, clearing invasive scrub and woodland species to promote biodiversity in the ground, which is beneficial to other amazing animals and wildlife.
