Red Sheep - North America Introduced

Ovis gmelini gmelini x O. vignei arkal

Carnero rojo (Sp), Rotschaf (G), Mouflon rouge (F).

DESCRIPTION (male) Shoulder height 29-32 inches (74-81 cm). Weight averages 110 pounds (50 kg), but sometimes as much as 150 pounds (68 kg).

According to Valdez and Nadler, whose classification is followed here, the red sheep is a hybrid between the Armenian mouflon (Ovis gmelini gmelini) and the trans-Caspian urial (O. vignei arkal), which occurs naturally in the Alborz Mountains of northern Iran. Its offspring are fertile. As a hybrid, it exhibits characteristics of both parental species. The chromosome number varies from 54-58, the saddle patch and bib may be present or absent, and the neck ruff and horn configuration are variable. The name "red sheep" is misleading, because some other kinds of sheep have redder coats. The general coloration is light brown or tan, with individuals varying from very light grayish-brown to light reddish-brown. Underparts are white. Females are smaller than males and may or may not have horns.

DISTRIBUTION Private properties, mainly in Texas.

REMARKS Red sheep are native to the Alborz Mountains and Kavir Desert of northern Iran.

HYBRIDIZATION Please see descriptive text above.
