Senegal Sheep Beauty Show
In this Saturday, Oct. 6, photo, Djibi Seck leads ram Abdoulaye into the ring during the Fann area regional final of the Khar Bii competition, which seeks to find the best sheep in Senegal ahead of the Eid al-Adha festival, in Dakar, Senegal. Abdoulaye went on to win his regional and will advance to the national final on Oct. 20. 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. (AP Photo/Rebecca Blackwell)
