    The Transcaspian Urial is a wild sheep, similar to big horn sheep found in the U.S. although the Urial tends to stay at lower, vegetated elevations rather than in the rockier mountain areas.  It feeds on grass and leaves.  The males have curled horns, again similar to bighorn sheep, while the females have shorter, relatively straight horns like those in this image.
