The Milkable Male Goat of Brazil

Nature is always throwing weirdness at us, and today's helping comes in the form of a hermaphroditic goat--a breedable male that can be milked.
A visitor to a goat show in Brazil did not hesitate to buy a hermaphrodite goat - a male goat that can be milked - when he first came across it. The goat is a clearly a Billy goat. And, translating the colloquial phrase "pai de chiqueiro", implies that it can be mated with a female goat. But, as seen in the video, the scrotum region apparently serves a dual purpose of being a set of udders that can be squeezed to get milk.

The interview is in Portuguese, but is subtitled for the non-Brazilian. Click through for more information than you'll ever need.

The proper term for a male goat is a buck, just like deer. Animals you milk only have one udder (not a set) goats have two teats, cows have four.
