Screen capture of the British media Mirror shows the birth of two baby Bagot goats on a Lincolnshire farm.

BEIJING, April 20 (Xinhua) -- These adorable kids are not just the cutest goats around, they are also rarer than pandas.

The Bagot goats, born on a Lincolnshire farm, are an endangered species, so the recent double birth is a cause for celebration, according to reports of the British media Mirror.

The Rare Breeds Survival Trust, a Britain-based conservation charity, estimates that there are only between 100 and 200 breeding Bagot females now left on Earth.

In comparison, it is thought there are 250 pandas in zoos and collections with another 1,800 to 3,000 surviving in the wild.
