TIL about the fat tailed sheep

Apparently there is a breed of sheep native to the middle east that is specifically known for its fat tail (hence the name). That’s why there a bunch of references to fat from sheep’s tail in Tanakh and Mishnah such as here and here. Never really though about how you could get so much fat from a sheep’s tail before.

Found out about this from this guys video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=htARnZjxQGs&ab_channel=TastingHistorywithMaxMiller
