Pictured below is the brain of an approximately two year old crossbred ram. The dark areas of the brain are blood clots that were formed more than likely as a result of head butting during the breeding season. The picture on the right is of the brain with the cerebellum cut off.
A- sagittal fissure
B- central sulcus
C- frontal lobe
D- parietal lobe
E- occipital lobe
F- temporal lobe
The above picture is the normal brain of a sheep. Compare this brain to the one at the top of the page.
