This Insanely Muscular Sheep Actually Exists

This is a ... sheep?

But this can't be a sheep. Sheep are light and fluffy, like a big piece of cotton candy, right?

Well, true. Most sheep are like that, but not all sheep are alike. The sheep in these photos are from a particularly husky breed known as beltex sheep.

Beltex sheep have extraordinary muscle mass compared to their flimsier cousins, who are more easily recognizable on a farm.

While their tank-like bodies are their defining feature, it's also what tricks people into thinking they're hairy pigs or even a pit bull wearing a fluffy sweater.

The beltex breed may be the black sheep of the species, but they are still part of the family.
