Senegal Sheep Beauty Show
In this Wednesday, Oct. 3, 2012 photo, a spectator uses a tablet to photograph breeders and their rams as the competitors await the judges' final decisions in the SICAP neighborhood Khar Bii regional final in Dakar, Senegal. 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 ahead of the Eid al-Adha festival, known locally as Tabaski. (AP Photo/Rebecca Blackwell)
