Sheep have a chambered stomach which allows them to store and digest the food by continuous regurgitation and rechewing. Also, their stomachs contain specific microbes that aid in digesting the nutrients to simpler biomolecules. Most also have horns that do not shed and grow with branching.
Most people are only familiar with the wooly farm sheep that says “Baaaaaaa.” But it is just one species of many that are present worldwide. Sheep are lazy animals, and if a sheep falls over onto its back, it might need help to get up. Without help, they can become distressed and even die if they are not rolled back.
