Cameroon Sheep

Ovis aries aries cameroon

Cameroon sheep are a domestic sheep breed. They are hairy sheep, as a woolly coat would be a disadvantage in the African climate. The males have horns and a thicker fur coat than the females.

Habitat

Cameroon sheep were domesticated in Cameroon in west Central Africa.

Diet

Cameroon sheep eat grass and their cleft upper lip helps them to graze very close to the ground. This close grazing improves the fertility of the grassland upon which they feed.

behaviour

Breeding

One or occasionally two lambs are born after a pregnancy of about 5 months in late winter or early spring.

Conservation

The Cameroon sheep is a domestic species, therefore not endangered. Our Cameroon sheep herd arrived from our sister park, Africa Alive!
