Pictures Darren Moston
TWIN baby African Pygmy goats are proving popular at Walton Hall & Gardens Children’s zoo in Warrington.
Born a fortnight ago the twin kids were pictured enjoying the sunshine by local wildlife photographer Darren Moston.
Zoo keeper Peter Cookson Dean, who had been keeping a watching brief, had been hoping for a rare pure white baby goat to add to the collection. His dream almost came true with one of the new twins almost all white apart from a small patch.
“We’ve never had a pure white baby goat born at the zoo and they are quite rare so we brought in Casper a white Billy from Yorkshire for the breeding,” said Peter.
“One of the twins is almost pure white” he added.
The twins were born during the early hours at 5am with Peter keeping a watching brief.
He will now be organising a competition for local school children to name the baby goats.
