The giant mountain sheep (Ovis ammon) lives in the Central Asian mountain range as well as Mongolia. The animal, which is a member of the bovid family, can reach a shoulder height of 130 cm and a weight of over 200 kilograms. The ram’s head alone, with its huge horns, accounts for 10 percent of its total bodyweight. The Argali is a gregarious animal which feeds solely on plants.
Its natural enemies are leopards and wolves, although normally only females and weaker animals are attacked. An adult male Argali, with its impressive horns, can defend itself very well. The Argali are only defenceless when hunted by humans. They are shot by poachers and trophy hunters, which has brought these animals to the brink of extinction. Today individual subspecies are greatly endangered.
