This aptly named mammal has a grayish-brown coat and a distinct white rump patch around its small brown tail. Males (rams) can weigh up to 500 pounds and have larger horns (up to 45 inches) than females (ewes). You can usually tell the age of a Bighorn Sheep by the number of segments in its horns…but do not approach the animals to count! They live in large herds and you’ll find them in Montana hanging out on cliffs and mountain slopes as well is in foothills and valleys. For more, visit Montana Field Guide.
