New York, N.Y., March 29, 2010 — The Wildlife Conservation Society's Queens Zoo is pleased to announce the arrival of four new Jacob's four-horned lambs. These adorable fluffy friends were born last week at the zoo and have been delighting visitors ever since.
Two males were born to mom, Phoebe, while her sister, Emma, gave birth to a duo of females. All four cuddly creatures have a coat of downy black-and-white wool, but it's easy to tell them apart. The males have mostly black wool with spots of white, while the females' colors are reversed.
Jacob's sheep are currently listed as threatened by the American Livestock Breeds Conservancy. This species has fewer than 1,000 annual registrations in the United States.
