If you think New Zealand is impressive you should see the Islas Malvinas "Falklands" Islands. There are nearly 170 sheep per resident!

I never associate sheep with India or China, but with so many people, I guessed. The 3 African countries surprised me - just guesses that got me 100% but with only 4 secs left. Fun quizzes, thanks.

Being from New Zealand, which has such a high proportion of sheep compared to its population, it was hard for me to work out that the only other countries with such high numbers of sheep had to have huge populations, and so spent the whole time just guessing random European, Central Asian, and South American countries, to little avail.

Surprised the US was so low on this list (50). There are lots of sheep in our area, including on our farm.

Coming from New Zealand, we probably have very different definitions of "lots of sheep".

To put it into perspective, maybe make it/ a quiz relative to size of the country? That is more telling/informative imo.

Think Wales would be able to make this list on their own. How many of the UKs stats belong to Wales?
