"Denali's Dall sheep" Top 5 Page for this destination Wildlife Tip by mrclay2000

  two Dall rams, Polychrome Mountain
by mrclay2000

The Dall sheep behave like their larger cousins the Bighorn or Rocky Mountain sheep. Separated by sex except for the mating season, the rams stay aloof from the main body until the rut dictates the clash of horns. Dall sheep are sighted in the most inaccessible cliffs and recesses, keeping to the highest pastures for food and protection. As usual with Denali's wildlife, the Dall normally appear at a considerable distance, but sightings are often fortunate near Polychrome Mountain and the areas bounded by the Toklat and East Toklat Rivers.
