The Royal Zoological Society of Scotland (RZSS) have shared the first images of their adorable baby bagot goat born at Edinburgh Zoo on February 19 to parents, Patrick and Janice. This is the second kid from their pair who welcomed male, Fredrick in May 2022.

This female kid has been named Grace by her keepers at the wildlife conservation site. Currently she can be seen sticking close to moms side as they explore the paddock together.

Mother Janice and the other adult female at the zoo, Judith were named by students at Dalkeith High School.

Bagot goats are believed to be the oldest species of goat in Britain. This species is considered to be important for conservation grazing. They help to clear the invasive scrub and promote biodiversity.
