APTOPIX Senegal Sheep Beauty Show
In this Saturday, Oct. 6, 2012 photo, Dogo Ndiaye strokes ram Papis General as competitors await the judges' final decisions, in the Fann area regional final of the Khar Bii competition, 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)
