Found in mainland North America, the St. Croix is typically white and polled, though local variants can have different coloration or markings.

St. Croix lamb meat is tender, with a sweet aroma and a delicate taste. The sheep is listed as "threatened" on the American Livestock Breeds Conservancy's Conservation Priority List.
