|Lower Taxonomy Ranks
|Since ancient times, the people of Coerthas have raised aldgoats for both their meat and milk. These stocky, hoofed beasts possess a fattened collar of flesh which protects their necks against the piercing fangs of predators. They also sport a pair of curved horns, with those belonging to males being markedly larger and of concomitantly greater value.
|'Aldgoat' appears to be a compound word created from the terms 'Aldenard', the continent on Eorzea on which these beastkin are found, and 'goat.'
"Atop rocky crags dwelleth the aldgoat, wondrous hardy and woolly, and ravenous insomuch that hardly he may have provender enough to sate his ne'erending hunger, for nigh all men know the land's stark mountaintops were once leafy knolls ere the aldgoat came, or so telleth the Ishgardian myth, Tale of Bridges.
Aldgoats are denizens of rocky, mountainous regions, indiscriminately eating any vegetation they happen across. They have thick, wooly coats and sharp horns, though the horns of the males are markedly larger than those of the females. These horns are highly sought after for their potency in various magical endeavors. The aldgoat also has a protective ring of tough flesh around its necks, which serves to defend against the bites of predators. Aldgoats can be successfully domesticated and raised as livestock provided they are broken before their second year.
