Cameroon sheep

Local nameKamerunschafe
LocationGrevenbroich, Germany

The Cameroon is a domesticated breed of sheep from west Africa but has been also exported to Europe.

During the colonial era, German and French rulers exported West African Dwarf sheep to France and Germany. These usually ended up in private collections and zoos. The animals selected for export to Europe were almost all of the black belly color type. The chestnut-colored drawing is not prevalent in the Djallonké, but only one of many. Today these sheeps are called Cameroon sheep or Cameroon Dwarf sheep in Europe. And incorrectly regarded as a separate breed. The International West African Dwarf Specialist Group of the African Ornamental Breeders Association considers what Europeans call the Cameroon sheep just a color type and not a separate breed.
