An Argali is a wild sheep that is related to the domesticated sheep that we see today on farms. They are the largest wild sheep in the world, and males can weigh up to 400 pounds!

These beautiful creatures live in the mountains of Central Asia, where they have evolved to be perfectly adapted to the cold, rocky environment. They are able to climb steep cliffs and run quickly over difficult terrain.

Argali are herbivores, and their diet consists mostly of grasses, sedges, and other plants. They also eat some lichens and mushrooms.

Males use their large horns to battle for dominance during the mating season. Females give birth to one or two lambs after a gestation period of about seven months.
