Goat Communication

Goats

A few years ago, scientists at the Queen Mary University of London discovered that goats are capable of rudimentary communications, similar to that used by dogs. These scientists studied goat behaviour (who knew one could make a living doing that) and realised that hungry goats will turn to look at humans intentionally to signal when they want the human to open a box containing food. We all know that dogs can tell us when they want something, but goats?

I had a distinct feeling that this goat wanted me to buzz off.

FYI, Biasini. Horses are good at this too. Perhaps you can have a conversation with the goats at Carriage Farm.

    Excellent. Perhaps goats have mental telepathy and we just don't get it. ?!?!

    I’m with I.J. I think some day we’ll learn much more about animal and insect communication. Interesting post. And yes, who knew one could make a living at such a thing!

    I'm not too surprised. Every animal which lives in some kind of collective needs to communicate. Even solitary animals, like tigers, need to teach their young.
