Argali (Ovis ammon)

The argali is the largest of the wild sheep, and the males have impressive horns that are highly prized by hunters. Currently 9 different subspecies are recognized, which vary both in their appearance and in their range. In general, argali have a light brown coat with white legs and a white rump patch. Although both sexes have horns, those of the male are much larger and more impressive; they can be up to 13% of the males' body mass. The corkscrew horns wind forwards and are of a formidable weight; those of mature Altai argali (Ovis ammon ammon) males weigh 20 - 22 kg. Males also have a ruff of white hair around the neck and a pronounced crest along the back, which adds to their impressive appearance.
