Sheep funeral (by: Sara Walker)

The matching phenomenon is the tendency of choosing a partner according to qualities such as physical characteristics and attractiveness.

In this clip, the Sheep holds a funeral for his lover (another sheep) who was slaughtered and put on a rotisserie to be eaten.  This clip demonstrates the matching phenomenon because the sheep selected a lover who is another sheep who he is physically attracted to, as opposed to choosing a chicken, turkey, etc.
