If you put an Ovis in a cryopod it takes off their wool and you won’t be able to shear it after releasing. You will have to wait until it grows back. So always shear them before putting them in a cryopod.
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.
I find a lot of them near 70,90 on valguero. It looks like it would be the chalk hills biome but it actually says it’s the jungle biome. And when you tame it don’t forget to feed it berries. Happy Hunting!
