The bighorn sheep (Ovis canadensis) is a species of sheep native to North America named for its large horns.

Desert Bighorn sheep live in matriarchal societies. A dominant female leads a herd, which for much of the year consists primarily of ewes and their lambs. The rams tend to stay together in bachelor groups until the summer breeding season
