Goats can live from 15 to 18 years.
Goats’ eyes have a horizontal rectangular pupil which stays horizontal to the ground at all times. This means they can see predators even when their head is down.
Like cows and sheep, goats have a dental pad instead of top teeth which helps them rip at grass or other plants.
A goat has four chambers in its stomach, perfect for digesting grass. They bring their food back up and chew on it some more to aid digestion.
Goats have horns on the top of their head, whereas a sheep has horns more to the sides of their head.
A fainting (myotonic) goat doesn’t actually faint. When startled they remain conscious, but their muscles freeze up and they topple over. They will regain muscle control in a matter of seconds or minutes.
Some goats are so good at climbing and balancing that they can even climb near-vertical cliffs and trees.
