    Since March has come in like a lion.... I thought of a good idea for a thread.
    The Lion n' Lamb Thread!-
    Rules-
    You can list all cat species (lions) and sheep/goat species (lambs), including domestics- seen in zoos and in the wild. Whoever has the most species/subspecies (subspecies are separate) on April 1 is the winner!
    They can be seen in January or February, not just in March
    For lions all cats (felids) count. For lambs all sheep and goats count.
    OK-
    Lions-
    1. African Lion
    2. Ocelot
    3. Fishing Cat
    4. Snow Leopard
    Lambs-
    1. Domestic Sheep
    2. Domestic Goat
