Senegal Sheep Beauty Show
In this Wednesday, Oct. 3, 2012 photo, breeders and caretakers stand with their rams as they await the judges' final decisions, in the SICAP neighborhood regional final of the Khar Bii competition, which seeks to find the best sheep in Senegal ahead of the Eid al-Adha festival, in Dakar, Senegal. In a nation where sheep are given names and kept inside homes as companion animals, the most popular show on television is "Khar Bii," or literally, "This Sheep" in the local Wolof language. It's an American Idol-style nationwide search for Senegal's most perfect specimen. (AP Photo/Rebecca Blackwell)
