A FACT ABOUT BABY ANIMALS; Do you know what a baby goat is called? A kid! Yup, just like we call our young little nose picking rambunctious brats! It’s not really much of a surprise why they’re called kids like human children. Goats are known for being highly playful and adventurous. They enjoy having a good time and getting in trouble. They’ll run about, climb onto everything they can, ram other animals and humans too and more. But what kid doesn’t wanna have fun?! | Animal blog | Photo credit
