The African Pygmy goats (Capra aegagrus hircus) are of West African origin and are recognised by their short legs due to genetic dwarfism. Raised as dairy and meat goats by rural families, they are valued for their prolific breeding potential and resistance to disease and parasites. Despite their small size, they can produce large amounts of milk. Mainly black, white, grey and brown, both sexes have horns but only the billy has a beard.
