The frist time I saw mine, I was on the edge of the redwood forest near a small stream. I picked it up with my Argent, so if you want to take it home and save it for breeding or tame meat that's the way too go.
It's unbelievable, it's unimaginable, it's uncomprehendable, because it can't fit through a doorway, or a behemoth gateway! Yet somehow, just somehow, it can fit through a small Dino gateway... It's not Dr. Strange, it's Dr. Sheep!!!ðŸ‘Œ
You find them (most often) up in the north biome, at the blue obelisk. As of now, they need to be born on a ceiling (One tile above where you want them), so they will not fall into the water under the map or other unaccessible places, warning, with this method they will still fall through the ceiling, but they will fall onto the foundation underneath, allowing you to claim them there. Another warning, The baby ovis needs to be claimed immediately, or else it will die of starvation, it will also have abnormally low weight, so be sure to feed it very often.
