Sheep

Ovis aries

Description:

Sheep are quadrupedal and ruminant mammals. They have poor eyesight but an excellent sense of hearing, they are more sensitive to high frequency noise than people and get scared by loud noises. The condition of sheep's teeth varies considerably according to their diet and the type of country they live on.

Notes:

Last year I wanted a sheep as pet instead a dog, but my parents thought it was a bad idea. They were photographed at the Barranquilla zoo.
