UFAN History and Traditions
What�s a Terragoat?
The UFAN biology department was working on a genetic enhancement project when
they found that one of the goat embryo experiments had a DNA mutation that
defied any of the laws of genetics. Curious, they let the zygote develop,
despite its random mutational changes. The embryo was implanted, and
eventually was born a baby Goat, but with advanced cognitive abilities, the
ability to walk on hind legs, and a penchant for earrings. When naming the
test subject, the research team commented on how Capriciously the experiment
had behaved in development, and Capricious got his name. Subsequent
development of the line was taken over by the US Government, who found that
the odd goats had the ability to breathe in a wide variety of atmospheres with
no ill effect. Thinking that they might be used in exploring other planets,
the project was codenamed TerraGoat 1. later it was found that the subjects
made lousy Astronouts, but excellent Athletes, and the UFAN Athletic department
took custody of the project back from the US Government.
