Photo of an Aoudad, Ammotragus lervia. This sheep lives in small groups, and, like most desert herbivores, it is active early in the morning and late in the evening. Hunting has reduced its populations. This goat has been introduced to Mexico, Canary islands, New Zealand and U.S.A. where it has been characterized as an invasive species.
