Bighorn Sheep at The Living Desert [livingdesert.org].
We had quite a show from them! This ram was in rut and was chasing the girls all around on the rocks. The friskiness displayed more leaps and bounds than a ballet! :)
From The Living Desert website:
“Is it threatened or endangered?
Yes, the U. S. population of the Desert Bighorn found in the Peninsular Ranges of southern California is on the federal Endangered Species List. They are endangered primarily due to loss of habitat from urban development and from decimation of herds from viral respiratory infections that affect lambs.”
