An adorable pair of Babydoll Sheep has settled into their new home at the Central Park Zoo.

The chocolate brown male, Sid, and pure white female, Nancy, are sharing an exhibit with other sheep and alpacas. They are expected to breed.

The Wildlife Conservation Society is working to bring awareness to rare species such as the Babydoll. The Babydoll Sheep is the oldest known purebred sheep in the world.

Visit the Central Park Zoo: Adult admission is $8 for adults, $3 for children (3-12), and it’s free for children under 3.
