The Dall Sheep is a type of wild sheep that is found in North America. They are closely related to the Bighorn Sheep and share a lot of the same characteristics.

Dall Sheep live in the rocky, mountainous regions of Alaska, Canada, and the Northwest Territories. They make their homes in the steep cliffs and ravines where there is plenty of vegetation to eat.

Dall Sheep are very well adapted to their cold, harsh environment. They have thick coats of wool that keep them warm, and their hooves are sharp and curved so they can grip the rocks easily.

Dall Sheep are beautiful animals that make for great wildlife viewing. They are mainly white in colour with some black markings on their faces and legs. Males (rams) weigh about 100 pounds, while females (ewes) weigh about 70 pounds. Rams have large, curling horns that can reach up to 3 feet in length. Ewes typically don't have horns.
