Twin African pygmy goats born at Md. zoo

BALTIMORE, Md. (WUSA9) -- The Maryland Zoo is celebrating the birth of twin African pygmy goats born on March 10.

The twins, one male and one female, were names Chloe and Clark and currently weigh nine and 10 pounds.

The kids were born to the Zoo's African pygmy goat pair Lex and Lois.

"We are so excited to have kids in the Farmyard again," stated Carey Ricciardone, mammal collection and conservation manager at The Maryland Zoo. "The two new babies have been behind the scenes with Lois since their birth, giving them time to bond. Luckily she's an experienced mother and is taking very good care of her kids."

According to a news release sent out Thursday, Lois and her twins were scheduled to make an appearance in the Zoo's Farmyard area Friday. However, due to the beautiful weather, visitors can see Chloe and Clark Thursday.

"They are busy exploring their environment, napping and playing with their mother," said Ricciardone in the news release.
