Jamaica Medical Mission 2015: MARY

Two day old "Mary" (umbilical cord still attached).
 Mary was a little lamb whose fleece was white as snow and every where that Pr. P went Mary was sure to go...

Note her horizontal slit pupils that allow for best vision while head-down grazing which reduces light from light above and below and maximizing peripheral vision to better see approaching predators. Thank you for the lesson in pupil size in animals Christian ! Miss you Mary ! Could have done without the baby goat meconium stool on my scrubs the remainder of the day though....
