Ovis Aries

Sheep were among the first animals domesticated. An archeological site in Iran produced a statuette of a wooled sheep which suggests that selection for woolly sheep had begun to occur over 6000 years ago. The common features of today's sheep were already appearing in Mesopotamian and Babylonian art and books by 3000 B.C.- Oklahoma State University

But the Creationists say that the Earth is only 6500 years old. I think this "sheep" was planted by heretics.
