Dall sheep

Their horns come in handy during mating season and as a line of defense against wolves and bears

Jacob W. Frank

Get ready to meet the Alaskan, Canadian, and Yukon mountain rockstars! These majestic beasts are a sight to behold, with their stunning snow-white coats that contrast beautifully against the rugged landscape. But that’s not all – their impressive horns are the real show-stoppers! The guys can grow them up to 127 cm (50 in).

They are also well-adapted to living in mountainous environments, with specialized hooves allowing them to navigate steep and rocky terrain easily. They are also incredibly agile, able to leap up to 4 m (12 ft) in a single bound, including habitat loss, climate change, and hunting. Conservation efforts are underway to protect these beautiful animals and ensure their survival for future generations.
