Desert Bighorn Sheep

Ovis canadensis

Description:

I saw this ram just off the road in western Colorado. I posted a ewe and lamb in June, 2016, so it is great to be able to post the male, as well. He was quite a large ram. Exciting to see!

Your spotting has been nominated for the Spotting of the Week. The winner will be chosen by the Project Noah Rangers based on a combination of factors including: uniqueness of the shot, status of the organism (for example, rare or endangered), quality of the information provided in the habitat and description sections. There is a subjective element, of course; the spotting with the highest number of Ranger votes is chosen. Congratulations on being nominated!
