The Maryland Zoo in Baltimore announced the addition of eight Nigerian goats to the Goat Corral. The new residents, three males and five females, are two-and-a-half-years-old and came to the Zoo from Chicago Zoological Society’s Brookfield Zoo.

“The new goats are already a great addition to the herd,” said Erin Cantwell, mammal collection and conservation manager.

“They are young and energetic, so with a total of 21 goats in residence now, the Goat Corral is extremely full of activity!”

“We’ve brought in a trio of siblings, Armani, Maybelline, and Clementine, sisters Java Bean and Mia, as well as Midge, Hoover and Lieutenant,” continued Cantwell.

The Goat Corral is part of the Farmyard where kids of all ages are welcome to come and interact with the goats.

It's open daily from 10:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. year round, weather permitting.
