Special Characteristics: 
This breed is exceptionally hardy and robust; it is resistant to extremes of temperature, drought and poor nutrition (Mason, 1967).
Main Location: 
Referred to as the typical sheep of Algeria, it is found widely distributed in Algeria from Biskra to the Moroccan border, and from the Sahara to the coast. Many varieties of the breed are known, but the population in the south is considered to be the true breed type (Mason, 1967).
This breed is believed to have evolved from the Tadmit sheep in Algeria.
