Rocky Mountain Bighorn Sheep Band 01

Rocky Mountain Bighorn Sheep Band 01

Description : The Bighorn Sheep is remarkable for its ability to survive in conditions as diverse as the snow-capped alplands of the Canadian Rockies and the hot deserts of Death Valley and northern Mexico. Recognizable by the massive curled horns of the adult rams and readily observed on many mountain rangelands, bighorns have long been a favourite subject of photographers and naturalists.

Bighorn sheep are gregarious, sometimes gathering in herds of over 100 individuals, although small groups of 8 to 10 are more common. Mature males usually stay apart from females and young for most of the year in separate bachelor flocks.
