About Pygmy GoatsAbout Pygmy Goats



Pygmy Goats were originallyrncalled the Cameroon Dwarf Goat since they originated in the former FrenchrnCameroon area. They are mostly found in West African countries. Similar formsrnof Pygmy goats also are found across northern Africa, southern western Africanrncountries, and in east Africa.

The Cameroon goats werernexported from Africa to zoos in Sweden and Germany where they were on displayrnas exotic animals. The first Pygmys probably arrived in the United States inrn1959 from Sweden.

rnrnPygmy goats have a fullrncoat of straight, medium-long hair which varies in density with seasons andrnclimates. Most often they have a grizzled (agouti) pattern produced by interminglingrnof light and dark hairs, of any color.
