The world’s oldest goat, named Them, was a domesticated animal in ancient times, but only recently have scientists begun to study her behavior and physiology.
It is not clear whether her behavior, health, and intelligence were directly influenced by her species.
In the past year, a goat named Thesaurus was the subject of a TEDx talk, and researchers are now hoping to study Thesauruses intelligence and intelligence-related traits in the wild.
In this week’s episode, we talk to scientists about how to interpret her behavior.
The goat’s story has been told in the past, but it is now time to find out what the goat knows about humans and her environment.
