Argali, Ovis Ammon
The Argali sheep is related to the universally known domestic sheep. It is approximately the same length as a domestic sheep but it is much taller and heavier than its domesticated relative.
Argali inhabit high altitude regions, usually 3,000-5,000 m. Habitat varies according to geographic location, but includes mountains, steppe valleys and rocky outcrops and open desert.
Their coat ranges from light yellow to darker grey-brown in colour. Face and underparts are lighter. Argali males also have a whitish neck ruff and a dorsal crest. Whilst females also have horns, the male corkscrew horns are much bigger.
The biggest of all wild sheep, the argali has suffered a major decline in population numbers and is particularly intolerant of human-induced changes.
