Meet Brutus and Caesar, two young Nigerian Dwarf-African Pygmy mix goats recently donated by a local farmer to BREC's Baton Rouge Zoo, where a KidsZoo enclosure is their new home. So named because they were born on March 15, the Ides of March, the brother 'Pygerian' kids Caesar and Brutus will eventually be in the 'contact yard' in the KidsZoo, but for now can be seen in the KidsZoo barn.

   The growing boys each weighed approximately 20 pounds at the end of July, 2020, but Brutus, who has darker coloration, is sporting a bigger belly. Caesar is not without some flair of his own-- he likes sitting in an empty water tub, and occasionally rears up on his hind legs and prances around a bit.
