Tunis sheep have tan or reddish skin and white wool except for on their faces and part of their legs. They retain fat in their tail to rely on in times when food is scarce. Tunis sheep are completely red or tan and the wool fades to white as it grows older. They are a docile animal used for meat and dairy products.
