The Goat is a members-only land animal. They were first confirmed on January 21, 2016, in Volume 164 of the Jamaa Journal and were released on February 18, 2016, at the Diamond Shop. Goats were traveling and returned on September 14, 2017. They were removed again on August 2, 2018. They could be obtained by buying the membership bundle in November of 2018. It was obtainable via purchasing a membership during the month of July in 2019, with the Frolicking Fair Bundle. It later left on July 3, 2020. It returned on March 4, 2021, as part of the Enchanted Lucky Bundle. It returned again on March 17, 2022, but left on May 20, 2022.
The Goat has a white body with a silver belly, black eyes with gray semicircles around them, a pink nose and ears, dark grey hooves, a short tail, and a little curly beard on the bottom of the chin.
It sits straight and tall.
Does a tap dance then switches from left to right.
Its eyes are closed as its legs curl, its knees bump out a bit, its head faces downwards, and it slightly goes up and down.
Jumps using all of its legs.
Jumps up and down on a trampoline and does several flips.
Its release was hinted on in a previous volume of the Jamaa Journal, volume 163, where the top left corner of the first few pages spelled out each individual letter of the word "goat," However, the letters were not arranged in order by page, so each letter taken from each page in number order would spell "tago." Because of the arrangement "tago," the hint was sometimes mistaken for hinting at a tegu lizard when the letters on the pages were intended to be an anagram.
The default color of the Goat's pattern is a very light icy blue. Once this color is changed, it cannot be reverted. The color is the same shade that appears frequently in some items.
There is a glitch where if a Jammer wears a Headdress on a Goat, a Clover Tie with the same colors as the Headdress will appear on the neck, even if they're already wearing a neck item.
On the first day of their release, there was a glitch that allowed Goats to join the Cloud Party. This glitch was later fixed.
Some of the Bow And Arrows appear as the wrong color (typically a lighter color than the actual item) when worn.
In one update, the Goats decided to go on a boat and leave to explore.
Although both genders of goats in real life have horns, goats on Animal Jam Classic don't have horns by default (similar to deer not having antlers by default), and the horns are instead available as an item (also similar to deer).
