    I was watching this video of Eagle pulling goats off the edge of cliffs and thought of this thread.

    Goats or mountain sheep lambs? Looked more like the latter to me, but biologically it's hard to differentiate sheep and goats.

    I had no idea mountain sheep even existed to be honest.

    Oh, my yes! Very sought-after trophies. Many big game hunters strive and expend great sums of money to achieve a "Grand Slam" of the North American sheep--Dall, stone, bighorn and desert. There are many species of wild sheep in the Old World, the most sought-after probably being the Marco Polo sheep from Afghanistan and thereabouts and the Mongolian argali.

    There are some animals that are borderline between sheep and goats--like the bharal of the Himalayas and the aoudad of North Africa. The mountain goat of North America is not a goat at all--more closely related to the antelopes, and our pronghorn antelope is not an antelope. Confusing, ain't it?
