Spanish military took to the streets to parade in Madrid on Thursday, and the Spanish Legion brought along their mascot – a ceremonial  goat.

This isn’t the only ceremonial goat in the world. For instance, the Royal Regiment of Wales ceremonial goat is called Llywelyn.

The royal family always help to choose the ceremonial goat, and chose Fusilier Llywelyn to take over in January 2016.

It looks like ceremonial goats have a similar uniform – including a super-cool hat.
