This week, two young Rocky Mountain goats have been introduced to their new home in Oregon Zoo and simply can't contain their bouncy, fluffy selves. The mountain goats are 5-month-olds — a male named Murphy and a female named Lena. Murphy and Lena are joining some adult goats Sassy and Montane in the rocky Cascade Crest habitat near the zoo's main entrance. 

Amy Cutting, who oversees the zoo's Great Northwest area had this to say, "We are so happy to welcome these kids into the herd. They started scampering around their new habitat right away, and soon enough Sassy and Montane will be showing them the ropes."  

Even though the young goats are very young, that haven't stopped them from mastering the art of hopping from rock to rock! 

Cutting continues to talk about these goat kids, "These kids came from Olympic National Park, so we're especially grateful we can provide a home for them here. Mountain goats are a non-native species in those mountains, and it's critical for that unique ecosystem that they be removed"  

All we can say after watching these adorable bouncy kids run around... man, we wish we had that energy.

Goats Are Able To Understand Human Facial Expressions

According to a recent study, goats are more intelligent than people previously thought. Goats have the ability to understand human expressions. They can tell the difference between unhappy faces and smiling ones and are attracted to the latter. 

Pretty wild, huh? 

How was the study conducted, you might ask. Researchers went to a goat sanctuary, and they showed goats a pair of photos — one with a happy face and the other with an angry expression. They were surprised to find that ALL the goats were drawn to the happy face. 

Honestly, the fact that Goats like you more when you're happy sounds like a good enough reason to smile.
