In a new study, scientists trained eight female Welsh mountain sheep to recognize photos of four celebrities: actress Emma Watson, former U.S. President Barack Obama, actor Jake Gyllenhaal, and U.K. newsreader Fiona Bruce. After a few days of being rewarded for correctly choosing the stars’ images over those of unfamiliar people displayed on side-by-side computer screens, the animals could distinguish the celebrities with about 80% accuracy.
