[STC00997] The blue sheep isn’t really blue in hue, and it’s not really a sheep either, if you want to get technical about it. The mammal, which is also known as the bharal, is more closely related to a goat than to any other species and finds its home on the mountain slopes of Mongolia and the Himalayas. The name “blue” may have originated from the bluish sheen that is sometimes displayed on the species’ coats, despite the fact that the species is predominately a light brown or gray color. Blue sheep dwell in groups on treeless slopes and meadows above the timberline. They have been observed to exhibit some behaviors that are similar to those of goats and sheep. Horns on adult males are big and curl backwards, giving them a distinctive appearance. They are protected in some areas of China by local Buddhist monks, but in other parts of the country they are subject to commercial hunting, which threatens their survival.
