WHAT IS THE EUROPEAN MUFLON LIKE?
The European mouflon is a fairly large animal that can weigh up to 50 kilos. It resembles a stylized sheep, with proportionally longer legs and neck. The wool is much shorter and dark brown in color, turning whitish on the snout, eyes, lower half of the legs, buttocks and belly. The males are larger and more robust than the females and are endowed with large horns that curve on both sides of the head; females, on the other hand, do not have horns or are very short in length. In winter, males develop white spots on their sides that do not appear in individuals of the other sex. The males have large horns, similar to those of the domestic ram, which curve back almost to close a circle and are larger the older the animal (maximum 80-90 cm).
