Meet The "Damascus Goat", The World's Ugliest (And Cutest) Animal In The World

The Damascus goat is an odd looking guy. For hundreds of years, he has been bred as a dual-purpose beast: for milk and meat. The Damascus goat is a relatively rare breed that hails from Syria and other Near East countries. There's also a large population in Cyprus, which was exported by the Brits in the middle of the 19th century. Also known as Aleppo, Halep, Baladi, Damascene, Shami, or Chami goats, they are popular in goat beauty competitions, notably winning the "Most Beautiful Goat" title at the Mazayen al-Maaz competition in Riyadh, 2008. About 50% of Damascus goat births produce twins and the kids grow quickly, thanks to the genetically superior quality of their mother's milk. The Damascus goat's milk is particularly easy to digest, and has become a popular choice for cheese manufacturers in the region.

The Sunflower Farm Creamery in Cumberland, Maine shared this super cute video of one of their newborn Nigerian Dwarf goats, named Hector, befriending three ginger tabby kittens: "Hector the Nigerian Dwarf baby goat is just 2 days old. His Mama Amelia Earhart is a little protective of her only kid (most goats have 3-4 babies at once!) While he waits for cousins to be born in the stall next door, he has befriended the three barn kittens. Mom is not so sure about this plan! The kittens did inspire him to climb the wood shavings bale for the first time!"

The proprietors of the Sunflower Farm Creamery in Cumberland, Maine shared this adorable video of their 48 rambunctious baby goats running around and playing in their cozy pajamas: " We have had 48 Nigerian Dwarf Goat kids born at the farm in the past two weeks. Now they are anywhere from 3 days old to 2 weeks old. They are getting so feisty so today we decided to let most of them out so their mamas could have their morning grain in peace without the kids jumping in their food and we had a fun pajama party. Our granddaughter Max especially loved it. Even the barn cat Virginia thought the kids looked pretty cute. A number of people have made us pajamas over the years so that we have a way to keep kids warm if they are born on super chilly Maine nights. But since we never get to see them all in action, I thought it would be a fun way to thank the sewers by making a video showing off all their work!
