The Mouflan is believed to be either the direct or very close ancestor of our present day domesticated sheep. When compared to farmed sheep, mouflans are sturdy animals. They have course black-brown hair and in the winter they will grow a soft layer of wool underneath to help keep them warm. The males have large horns that curve back toward their shoulders. They use these horns to fight other males during the breeding season. The female mouflan do not have horns. These wild sheep live in the mountains in herds of about 20 animals.
