Cameroon sheep are a domestic sheep breed. They are hairy sheep, as a woolly coat would be a disadvantage in the African climate.

It is believed that there are less than 1000 of these sheep in existence, most often they can be seen at farm parks, zoo’s and some are in private collections. They are a resistant, problem-free sheep.

Their most common colour is brown with a black belly, head, and legs.
