Don't you find it in a goat? Well, not ALL goats of course. There's males which don't have it at all and baby goats, half of which don't have it yet. Then, too, there are goats that are too old and goats that are dead. Some goats live in trees. And some goats are really sheep.
Best to get your goat milk from a carton at the market.

They're not actually fire proof they are explosion resistant. They have a flame arrestor that prevents fire from propagating to the inside of the container and causing an explosion. Since the cap is spring loaded it will release any internal pressure to the outside so if the can is exposed to excessive heating from any cause the flammable vapors will vent and burn without the can failing explosively and causing a Boiling Liquid Expanding Vapor Explosion or BLEVE. As soon as the external heat is removed the lid will reseat and cut off the continuing flow of vapors thus extinguishing the vapor fed fire at the vent.

The expensive ones have a screen mesh in the opening hole, that helps keep the can from going boom.

I put a valve stem in my can and took out the core and put a plastic cap on it. Jerry
