You’ve got to be kidding! Farmer and his GOAT babble at each other in hilarious ‘conversation’
- Omar Murso, from Morocco, recorded the funny interaction with his pet, Lino
- The seven-month-old goat is able to respond to Omar’s bizarre sounds
- Goats have been found to be one of the most intelligent animals on the planet
A farmer has filmed a hilarious exchange with his pet goat and insists they have their ‘own way of communicating’.
Omar Murso recorded his ‘conversation’ with seven-month-old Lino while they were resting on a hillside in Tangier, Morocco.
Omar is heard in the video making bizarre sounds and the goat responds in kind – as if he understands him.
Hilarious footage of a goat from Morocco communicating with its owner has surfaced
Omar, who keeps Lino as a pet, recorded the conversation on June 13.
He said: ‘Lino is the smartest goat I have ever had. I can’t believe how many people are impressed with his intelligence. We have a connection, our own way of communicating.’
Researchers have found goats to be intelligent and curious with excellent memories.
When bred as pets, instead of for agricultural use, they are able to develop complex emotional relationships, in the same way as a pet dog or horse.
Goats can also communicate with their owners by staring at them when they are struggling to complete tasks.
Lino, a seven-month-old goat, can be seen bleating in response to his owner, Omar, who says that friends and family are often astounded by his pet’s intelligence
For example, if they cannot reach food placed just beyond their reach, the goats will gaze repeatedly between the snack and a human in the same room, biologists at Queen Mary University of London found.
Dogs have been found to use similar approaches.
Goats are also sociable animals, and can become depressed when separated or isolated from others, and their inquisitive nature allows them to explore and investigate anything they come across that appears unfamiliar.
