Female sheep are called ewes, male sheep are called rams, and the process of giving birth is called lambing. A group of sheep is called a flock. Within only minutes, newly born lambs can stand and are walking with the flock almost immediately.
Sheep, like goats have rectangular pupils which allow them to have a 270 to 320 degree field of vision. This means that they can see almost everything around them, except for what’s directly behind them, without having to turn their heads. This is especially useful for sheep as they are a prey species and need to always be on watch for predators.
They have an excellent sense of smell and even have scent glands in front of their eyes and on their feet!
They have great memories and can also self-medicate. They use plants and other substances that otherwise hold no nutritional value to them to prevent or treat disease, and teach their young to do the same.
Sheep are capable of experiencing a wide range of emotions, just as humans do. Many studies have highlighted the ability for sheep to feel afraid, angry, bored, sad and happy. Not only are sheep able to feel basic emotions, but their feelings can be very complex and include interactions between emotions and cognition. For example, believe it or not, scientific studies have shown that sheep can be pessimists and optimists!
