Senegal Sheep Beauty Show
In this Wednesday, Oct. 3, 2012 photo, a breeder hugs his ram after walking it around the ring in the final judging portion of the SICAP neighborhood Khar Bii regional final, 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 ahead of the Eid al-Adha festival, known locally as Tabaski. (AP Photo/Rebecca Blackwell)
