DESCRIPTION OF THE SPECIES

Cameroon goats have short, recurved horns; they also have beard and big straight ears, like in a common goat. The tail is small and point up. Cameroon goats are the representatives of the group of pigmy goats, which were brought from their native land – Africa – to many countries worldwide. The body length is 65-70cm. The height at the shoulder is up to 50cm. The males weigh 21-23kg; the females weigh 12-15kg. In the natural habitats, the wild Cameroon goats live in large groups. These small copies of common goats are known for their cheerful nature, excellent health and inexhaustible energy in communication with people. Cameroon goats have the natural passion for high jumps and tree climbing. That is why they are jokingly called wood goats.

They are undemanding in food; they feel themselves well eating browse forage and hay. Like the other goats they like greens and cabbage. As for the amount of food they eat, it is 5-7 times less than the amount eaten by their larger congeners.
