ABOUT GEESE

 

(ANSER  ANSER)

 


Anser Anser is the common wild grey geese of Europe, also called the Greylag. The Greylag is said to be the ancestor of all our domestic geese, and the common goose of Britain undoubtedly was the English Grey, although a white variety existed, and the Grey Back (Saddleback) may have come from an intercross.
