In March you see lambs everywhere! Greeting cards, advertising, decorations. So let's talk sheep. Your basic domestic model is thought to be descended from everyone's favorite, the mouflon. Sheep are found all over the world - they are the most widespread domesticated animal. Some can store fat in their tails. They are called, oddly enough, Fat-tailed sheep. Did you know all sheep have four stomachs? You'd think the Fat-taileds wouldn't need that many, what with the back end storage. But they've got 'em. Go figure.
Happy March 23!
