Australias Chris The Sheep is officially the wooliest of all time

Australias Chris The Sheep is officially the wooliest of all timeAustralian sheep Chris has absolutely smashed the Guinness World Record for heaviest sheep fleece in the world.

After weeks of unverified reports of an enormous sheep lurking near Canberra, Australia, Chris was captured by the RSPCA (the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals) in early September.

It is thought he had lived in the wild without being shorn for over five years.

It took a team of five shearers including sheep-shearing champion Ian Elkins about forty minutes to strip Chris of his very thick coat.

And the final fleece weighed A WHOPPING 41.1 KILOGRAMS.

The fleece toppled the previous world record holder a sheep named Big Ben from New Zealand, whose fleece weighed a comparatively paltry 28.9 kilograms.

The newly-shorn Chris is now living out the rest of his record-holding days in his new home on a farm in New South Wales.
