I am obsessed with the sheep!


Sheep have a strong instinct to follow the leader. When one sheep decides to go somewhere, the rest of the flock usually follows, even if it is not a good decision. For example, if the lead sheep jumps over a cliff, the others are likely to follow. Even from birth, lambs are conditioned to follow the older members of the flock.

Ok, not the brightest animals in the world. But still, who trains their kids to jump off cliffs?
