The mouflon is thought to be one of two original ancestors of all modern day sheep. It originated on the islands of Corsica, Sardina, and Cyprus, but has recently been introduced into much of Europe. As wild sheep, the mouflon lives usually above the tree line or in mountain meadows. Both males and females have horns, but the males are larger. They are curved, spiral horns usually around 25 inches in length and arch back over its head. The size of a male mouflon’s horns determine his status in the group. Males and females live in separate groups, feeding on short grasses and shrubs as they are herbivores. They are quite shy animals who have a rough coat, which in winter grows a woolly under coat for extra warmth.
