The Barbary sheep is a large species of Ovis. It is a type of sheep mostly found in and around the Atlas and Rif mountain ranges in Northern Africa.
The Barbary sheep has a tan colored body, legs, and head with a dark brown stripe which starts at the back of its neck and ends between its shoulders. The horns on the male are large and cylindrical while those on females measure between 11-15 inches (27 to 38 cm).
During mating season males use their noses to fight for dominance by sizing each other up then butting heads until one backs down or one ram charges forward into the other ram's shoulder using his horns as leverage.
