Nuzzling Sheep

Resting on a mountainside near Denali, this ewe and her kid are protected from Alaska’s predators. Dall sheep typically frequent the open alpine ridges, meadows and mountainsides with extremely rugged “escape terrain” in the immediate vicinity. Male Dall sheep are called rams and have massive curling horns, whereas ewes have shorter, slightly curved horns. Rams’ horn clashing is a means of establishing social order.
