Lamb vs Kid

Rolled back "Lamb" to "Kid" change. Although "kid" might also be used for a lamb, "lamb" is not applicable to a (human)kid. As such "lamb" is less ambiguous than "kid". This suggested change will need additional reasons to switch to a more ambiguous name. --.MvGulik. 06:06, 24 January 2020 (EST)

I believe both "kid" and "lamb" are exclusive to the specific specie, so the kid change was technically correct in dictionary term. Although in lay term, kid and lamb are known to be interchangable, not just one or the other.

Forgot to specify human to "kid". As such "kid" applies to two species. "lamb" to only one. Although technically correct, I'm not sure "kid" will work as well as "lamb" for most none native English players. --.MvGulik. 07:43, 24 January 2020 (EST)
It seems like devs use "kid" word for adolescent domestic goats:
