Nigerian goats are the latest addition at Maryland Zoo in Baltimore

The Baltimore Sun

Eight Nigerian goats have arrived at the Maryland Zoo in Baltimore, the zoo announced Friday.

The 2 ½-year-old goats came from the Chicago Zoological Society’s Brookfield Zoo, joining the 13 goats currently at the Maryland Zoo, according to a news release.

“We’ve brought in a trio of siblings, Armani, Maybelline, and Clementine, sisters Java Bean and Mia, as well as Midge, Hoover and Lieutenant,” Erin Cantwell, mammal collection and conservation manager, said in the release. “They each have a fun colorful coat pattern, and we are excited for folks to come visit them.”

The additions come after news this week that a second giraffe had died at the Baltimore zoo this year. A 5-year-old female named Juma died this week from an undetermined illness, and a male calf named Julius was euthanized in July.
