We saw him at the zoo, I've never seen one like it before. He seemed small for a goose, but way to big to be a duck. Any thoughts?

Looks to me that its a Bar-Headed goose Anser indicus. It a goose from the mountainous regions of asia and India.

so it's a wild breed or has it been domesticated? Do people normally call it a bar-headed or do they usually say anser?

Bar heads are wild, & that's their common name, the scientific nomenclature would be Anser indicus, or simply A. indicus....All gray geese are Anser genus, & all white geese are Chen...
