The goats who stare at men

There is just not enough randomness in the blogosphere,...

Interesting goat fact #1: goat call development is affected by their social environment, kids raised in the same social groups produce similar calls which become more similar as they grow older. This suggests that vocal plasticity may be more widespread in mammals than assumed, and might provide a window onto the evolution of vocal learning and human language. Wow! Now that is interesting.

Interesting goat fact #2: they sometimes smell a bit. Wow! Now that is interesting.

Are we done here? Yes? Good.
