Majestic Bighorn Sheep symbolize wild and unspoiled places. The Rocky Mountain Bighorn Sheep is the provincial mammal of Alberta. They are relatively large, with males that occasionally exceed 500 pounds and females that exceed 200 pounds. The male, or ram, grows massive horns that arc backwards then curl forward alongside the face. Females are called ewes. They also have horns, though shorter than the males' and with less curvature. When Bighorns clash their heads together, the force is so great that the sound can often be heard several kilometers away.

The Rocky Mountain Bighorns occupy the cooler mountainous regions of Canada, and being fast and agile climbers, they choose habitats near steep, rocky terrain that offers escape from predators such as Coyotes, Grizzly Bears and Mountain Lions. Bighorn sheep are considered desirable game animals by hunters.
