It had been known that sheep can recognize faces of other sheep and familiar humans, like their handlers, but this study tested their ability to decipher between people on a computer screen.

Among the faces they were trained to recognize were Harry Potter actress Emma Watson and former U.S. President Barack Obama.

The study found that the face-recognition of sheep are comparable to those of humans and monkeys.
