Wooly Mammoth

This little guy was nicknamed Shrek. He was a New Zealand sheep that just wanted to be left unshorn, and he remained so for six years, only to be ensnared when he was 10 years old and shorn on live television (apparently there isn’t much to do in New Zealand… but I totally would have watched it too). When he was shorn, he shedded a 60-pound fleece (enough to make 20 large men’s suits), which was auctioned off for charity.
