Sheep were brought to New Zealand in 1774 by colonists, so while this does not make it a local animal, their abundance has made them hard to ignore in terms of New Zealand culture. New Zealand is the world's largest exporter of lamb, as the New Zealand terrain and vegetation makes sheep farming rather ideal versus other kinds of agricultural production. There are 6 sheep for every human resident in New Zealand.
