African Pygmy Goat Weighs Less Than a Laptop

An African pygmy goat named Lana was born at the Maryland Zoo on Sunday, June 10 and she only weighs 3 pounds! She’s so tiny you could stick little Lana in a backpack, carry her around all day and your arms wouldn’t even get tired.

Lana might be small, but she hasn’t let her petite size stop her — the baby goat began to walk about an hour after her birth.

Like many newborns, Lana spends most of her time napping and nursing, but according to Mike McClure, the zoo’s general curator, as she grows older, she’ll become very active.
