Have you heard of the Argali sheep? The world’s largest sheep is the Argali sheep, also known as mountain sheep. They can also reach a height of one metre and weigh hundreds of kilograms.
Despite their majestic appearance, this sheep has a tragic fate that they must endure.
Argali sheep, like other species, prefer to congregate in groups of their own kind.
This species also has longer fur than other sheep species.
Argali is hunted for its unique spiral horn as well as its meat. Their gender can be determined solely by their horns and body size. Female Argalis typically have smaller horns. Some may not even have horns, unlike their male counterpart. Male Argali sheep have larger horns and are larger in size than female Argali sheep.
The horns of an Argali sheep are corkscrew-shaped, and male Argali sheep usually use their horns to compete with one another.
However, in addition to being a potential weapon for other sheep, their horns can cause fatal injuries to themselves.
When you look closely at their horns, you can see that as the sheep age and their horns grow larger, the horns can potentially pierce their cheeks.
In the end, the sheep may perish as a result of their own lethal horns. The horns, which were originally used as a weapon to protect themselves, became the greatest threat to their own life.
What a calamity!
