Wild Sheep are even-toed hollow-horned ruminants. These are middle and large-sized animals, with Mouflon being the smallest species and Argali - the largest one. All mountain sheep have massive coiling horns of different types.These animals inhabit almost all alpine regions of the Northern hemisphere. Asia provides maximum species diversity: here the mountain sheep inhabit mountain chains of Caucasus, Pamir, Altai, Tian Shan, Himalaya etc.
The wild sheep have always played a great role for humanity and still remain a coveted trophy. Though the mountain sheep on average prefer to stay at the lower altitudes than the mountain goats, the mountain sheep stalk is an ultimate hunting experience.
