The South Pacific Ram
Arapawa ram are the wild ram hunted in New Zealand, and are thought to have been introduced to the Chatham Islands in 1841 as a food source. Although wool was eventually clipped from this South Pacific species, the Arapawa is significantly different from farmed sheep.
The sheep are descended from Spanish Merinos or Bengal (known as Whaler’s sheep after they become feral).
