Hansa Ride-On Sheep
Did you know? Sheep, a member of Order Artiodactyla, are found extensively in Australia, New Zealand, South America, and the western United States. Domestic sheep are believed to have descended from the Mouflon, found in the mountains from Turkey to southern Iran. Sheep have horizontal slit shaped pupils. The narrower the pupil, the more accurate the depth perception of peripheral vision is. Animals like goats and sheep may have evolved horizontal pupils because better vision in the vertical plane may be beneficial in mountainous environments.
