Unfortunately, New Zealand used to have 20 sheep for every person, now they only have 6. To add insult to injury, they are no longer even #1 in Sheep per Capita, having been recently passed by Mongolia.

Maybe sheep are related to orcs.

^ I'm not sure if that thought makes orcs less scary, or sheep more scary...

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".
