Characteristics and Habits

波爾羊發源於南非,是日行性群居動物,鼻樑凸起,耳寬下垂,毛短而稀,有雙棕色大眼睛。公羊角粗大,向後、向外彎曲,母羊角細而直立;公母都有鬃、耳長而大且寬闊下垂。 羊是聰明好奇的生物,牠們經常用一些聰明的方法穿過圍欄。幾乎什麼都吃,最喜歡的食物是灌木和草,常因遊客亂拿東西餵食而腸胃出問題。 The Boer goat is originally from South Africa. They have big wide droopy ears. The male's horns are curved and thicker, and the female's horns are thinner and straight. They are always hungry and try to eat everything. Do not feed them without instructions of the zoo staff so they won't be sick or poisoned.
