The argali (ovis ammon) is a type of giant wild sheep. It is most commonly found in the mountains of Central Asia. The series 'Mongolian wildlife' commemorates the argali with this gold coin.
The argali is one of the world's largest sheep species. It is common to southern Siberia, Mongolia, as well as Tibet. This giant sheep can reach a shoulder height of 130 cm and a weight of over 200 kg. With its huge horns, the ram's head alone accounts for a good 10 percent of the total body weight. The argali is a gregarious animal that only eats plants.
Leopards and wolves are among the natural enemies of the argali, although usually, only females and weaker animals are attacked. A mature argali with its impressive horns can defend itself quite well. Yet, if hunted by people, these sheep are left completely vulnerable. Unfortunately, they often fall victim to poachers and trophy hunters, who have nearly brought these animals to the brink of extinction. Today, individual subspecies are endangered.
