Urial

(Ovis orientalis vignei)

The Urial is a subspecies of the wild sheep found in Central Asia. It inhabits grasslands below the timberline. It is an herbivore, and primarily eats grass as wells as the leaves of trees and shrubs. Male Urials possess long, curved horns extending from their heads, while females have shorter, stouter horns. Urials live up to around eight to twelve years in the wilderness.
