Where does the Sheep live?

Sheep are domesticated animals that originated from wild sheep living in the mountains and grasslands of central Asia.

The natural habitat of sheep includes a variety of terrains, such as rocky slopes, meadows, and forests.

Sheep are adaptable to different environments, and they can survive in harsh conditions, such as extreme cold or heat.

Sheep are most likely descended from the Asiatic species of mouflon, which is still found in parts of Iran, Turkey, and Cyprus.

There are also other wild sheep species, such as the argali, urial, bighorn sheep, Dall sheep, and snow sheep, that live in different regions of the world.

As a domestic animal, people generally choose the habitat in which sheep live.

However, some feral populations do exist.

Compared to other livestock, sheep prefer mountainous or hilly regions.

Generally, people keep sheep in farmland, grassland, pasture, and other similar habitats with plenty of grass and plants to feed on.

Wild sheep are most often found across the Middle East, Asia, Central Europe and North America, where they inhabit steep mountainous areas.
