This incredible bust of a Dall Sheep Ram is incredible. The way the ram is looking back as if to gaze over a mountain. His head is cocked as if straining against the weight of his horns. This resin collectible stands 13" x 9" x 9".
The diets of Dall sheep vary from range to range. During summer, food is abundant, and a wide variety of plants is consumed. Winter diet is much more limited and consists primarily of dry, frozen grass and sedge stems available when snow is blown off the winter ranges. Some populations use significant amounts of lichen and moss during winter.
Males live in bands which seldom associate with female groups except during the mating season in late November and early December.
Many Dall sheep populations visit mineral licks during the spring and often travel many miles to eat the soil at these unusual geological formations. As several different bands of sheep meet at mineral licks, ram and ewe groups may mingle and young rams join the ram band which happens to be present at the time. This random contribution of young rams to different ram bands may benefit sheep by maintaining genetic diversity.
Sheep are very loyal to their home ranges. Mineral licks are good spots to observe sheep because the animals are so intent on eating the dirt they pay little attention to humans. However, major disturbances such as low-flying aircraft or operating machinery readily drive sheep from the mineral licks. Photography of Dall sheep is popular for many visitors and residents of Alaska and is not limited by season(alaskaphotographics.com).
