Description:

American bighorn sheep possess massive, brown-spiraled horns and beautiful brown fur. These animals live in the western mountains of North America, ranging from southern Canada all the way to northern Mexico. Although bighorn sheep are well-adapted to a range of elevations and temperatures, they prefer steep, rocky regions and are attracted by open alpine meadows containing a variety of grasses and succulent, low-growing vegetation. In captivity, the natural diet of these sheep is supplemented with alfalfa and grain pellets. In the wild, these animals will eagerly seek out mineral licks containing salt.

Gregarious animals, bighorn sheep sometimes gather in herds of over 100 individuals. In the wild, herds consist of a dominant ewe and a mixture of ewes, yearlings, and lambs. Rams travel in small bands of their own, joining the females during the mating season.

Bighorn sheep are very alert and, in addition to possessing keen hearing and a good sense of smell, have remarkable vision that allows them to judge distances accurately when jumping and locating footholds. They can spot other animals moving from up to a mile away. Bighorn hooves are hard on the outside and soft on the inside, and so act as shock absorbers, contributing to the sheep's ability to rapidly scramble up rocky terrain.
