Mouflon

 

… in the Taunus …

The mouflon (Ovis orientalis orientalis group) is a subspecies group of the wild sheep (Ovis orientalis).

Populations of O. orientalis can be partitioned into the mouflons (orientalis group) and the urials (vignei group).

The mouflon is thought to be one of the two ancestors for all modern domestic sheep breeds.
