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.
Cameroon Sheep were domesticated in Cameroon in west Central Africa.
One or occasionally two lambs are born after a pregnancy of about 5 months in late winter or early spring.
Cameroon Sheep (Ovis aries cameroon dwarf) 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.
