African pygmy goats are a small, domestic breed of goat, that is very social and outgoing by nature. Pygmy goats are great climbers that like to scale rocks and tree stumps with ease. They have a thick coat of hair that is straight and medium to long in length. Males have the most hair and have long flowing beards. Both male and female African pygmy goats have horns.
They can produce large amounts of milk despite their small size.
They are very social and like to be in the company of other goats. The males will butt heads to establish a hierarchy in the group.
