Fact of the Day: Sheep Vision

Sheep have rectangular pupils which gives them excellent peripheral vision. They can even see a good bit behind themselves without turning their heads.

It's good to know what is behind you, no fool.

that is deeply delightful! Too bad they are extremely stupid. When a wolf attacks one of them, the rest will just stand beside and stare at it, they often don't even run away.

I've got Trembling Vision. No joke. My doc tells me it's normal when you're suffering from sarcoidosis. So next time I see you and tell you to stand still, you know why that is :)
