Spot is a Mini-Nubian Goat born at the Tisch Children’s Zoo at the Wildlife Conservation Society’s Central Park Zoo.
Named for the white spot on his head, the mini-Nubian goat is just two weeks old and can be seen running around the petting yard and greeting visitors with tiny bleating sounds.
Spot, with his parents, and other members of the goat family can be seen in the Tisch Children’s Zoo.
Mini Nubian goats are a cross between Nigerian dwarf and full-sized Nubian goats. They have long floppy ears and coats that can be many different colors. Mini-Nubian goats have playful personalities and calm demeanors that make them an instant favorite among zoo visitors of all ages.
