Big sheep typically brown in color with white hind quarters. Sometimes confused with Dall’s Sheep but found in different ranges. Male horns are up to four times longer than the short blunt horns on females. Slight color change occurs during an annual springtime molt.
Large wild sheep species of British Columbia, Yukon, NW Territory and Alaska. Very good on treacherous terrain. Typically smaller than Bighorn Sheep and found further north although their ranges converge in Western Canada. Typically white or pale gray in color. Males and females are not typically together outside of the rutting season.
