Researchers found a new fact about sheeps that they can recognize human faces from photographs on computer screens.
A magazine published on Wednesday tells that The Cambridge University study shows that sheep can recognize the faces of their human handlers without any prior training. Sheep can only recognize the familiar faces of other sheep and of humans.
The researchers said that this study of the ability of sheep to recognize faces may be useful in research into Huntington’s disease and other human brain disorders that affect mental processing.
Sheep have advanced face-recognition abilities comparable to those of humans and monkeys, Lead scientist Professor Jenny Morton says. Sheep can also recognize the face of Emma Watson and Harry Potter’s face.
