A lovely Bighorn sheep, looking at the camera like he's thinking..."can you hurry up,I can't hold this post for long!"... ~smile.
In Canada the Bighorn lives in the snowfields of the Rockies and it's most important asset is it's hooves. The front hooves are slightly larger than the hind ones and each has a hard rim on the outer edge with a soft, concave area in the middle. This provides the Bighorn with excellent traction on steep, rocky terrain.
The Bighorn is also gifted with keen eyesight which allows it to detect movement and objects up to a kilometre away, giving it time to climb up or down a steep incline to safety. It can use ledges only five centimetres wide for footholds and can jump as far as six metres from ledge to ledge.
