While driving around Las Vegas last year, we've seen a lot of this big horn statues along the road. I am so intrigued about it so I did a little digging online when we came back home. I've learned that these Desert Bighorn Sheep (Ovis canadensis) are large sheep of desert mountains with a tan coat and white rump. Below are its characteristics:
- Adult males are recognized by their large, curled horns.
- Females and young males have smaller, straighter horns.
- Adult males weigh about 140–180 pounds, while females are somewhat smaller, weighing about 90–150 pounds.
- They stand about 2-½ to 3-¼ feet at shoulder.
