Mouflon refers to the species as a whole, including both males and females. Male mouflon are termed "rams" and possess large, curved horns, while females, called "ewes", have shorter or sometimes even no horns.
Mouflon sheep are native to the mountainous regions of the Caucasus, northern Iraq, and Iran.
Introduced to parts of Europe and Mediterranean islands, mouflon sheep have adapted by consuming local vegetation and are sometimes found in forested areas rather than just open mountainous regions.
Adult males typically weigh between 50-60 kg, and females are slightly lighter, usually weighing between 25-35 kg.
Mouflon have a thicker, woolly coat in winter that provides insulation, which they shed in warmer months for a shorter, sleeker summer coat.
Yes, the rut, or mating season, typically occurs in late autumn. During this time, rams often engage in head-butting contests to establish dominance and win over females.
Mouflon sheep can live up to 10-14 years in the wild, though their lifespan can be shorter due to predation and environmental factors.
Mouflon use a combination of vocalizations, body language, and scent marking to communicate, especially during the rutting season.
