Hora Sfakia, Crete, Greece: A hairy reddish-brown goat on the coastal hikers trail. Domesticated goats have the scientific name Capra aegagrus hircus and were bred from wild goats of southwest Asia and Eastern Europe. As members of the Bovidae family, goats are closely related to sheep, which are also in the goat-antelope subfamily, Caprinae.
The Kri-kri (Capra aegagrus creticus), sometimes called the Cretan goat, Agrimi, or Cretan Ibex, was considered a subspecies of Wild Goat, but has been recently found to be a feral variety of the domestic goat. The Kri-kri is a large ungulate native to the Eastern Mediterranean, now found only on the island of Crete, Greece and three small islands just offshore (Dia, Thodorou and Agii Pantes).
