The twin sister Nigerian dwarf goats born two weeks ago at Point Defiance Zoo & Aquarium are small bundles of energy that entertain kids and adults alike.

Point Defiance Zoo & Aquarium LogoFittingly, considering the goats’ very different coloring, members of the public picked Sugar and Spice from three slates of names submitted by zookeepers. The also-rans were Opal and Agnes and Coral and Elsie.
