Comments: Dall's sheep belong to the "thin-horn" branch of Ovis. Thier horns spread & spiral more the the Bighorns; tips point away from the face. Males average about 36" in shoulder height & weigh from 165-200 lb. Grasses & sedges are their main food. Dall sheep are found in the mountainous areas of the Yukon & Alaska.
