Whatever floats your goat

Goat pictures regularly go viral on the Internet for a reason, and it’s not just the photos of them chilling on an apparently vertical cliff face that make for some of the best funny animal pictures. As well as daredevil goats, there are also fainting goats, screaming goats, tree-climbing goats, goat yoga, and don’t even get us started on baby goats! Pictures of baby goats might even be cuter than the cutest pig pictures. Goats are well known for their ability to chew on pretty much everything, from socks to alfalfa, but they’re also smart animals. They make for one of the cutest farm animals. They can learn their names and be taught to come when called, although they can be pretty stubborn. Their spooky rectangular pupils give them 340-degree vision! Goats are very sociable animals and will make friends with almost anyone, from fellow goats to the pig next door.

Dare to be different

Sometimes, you’re just a goat in a herd of sheep, lost in the flock… Some animals deserve new (and hilariously silly) names to capture their individuality.
