About the Desert Sheep (Ovis canadensis nelsoni)

The Desert Bighorn Sheep is a subspecies of Bighorn sheep that has adapted to a much warmer and arid climate. This climate offers very little water or food, making survival very difficult. Their range includes much of the southwestern United States into the northern mountains of Mexico. The Desert Bighorn sheep is smaller than the Rocky Mountain bighorn, with a smaller skull, bigger ears, paler color and a shorter coat with males generally weighing approximately 150-170 lbs and females often weighing 90 - 120 lbs. Their habitat includes desert mountains with ample sources of water, as they must drink every few days during extremely hot weather to survive.

When items are too large to ship with a common carrier (UPS, FedEx, etc) we are then required to ship with a freight service, which will deliver your shipment on a semi truck. We utilize a variety of freight carriers to quickly and safely transport large shipments to our clients around the U.S.

We pack and ship all of our items with a dedication to safe and secure transit, and over 40 years of taxidermy-shipping experience, utilizing innovative new ways to pack your order in a wooden crate, ensuring it arrives to you in the exact same conditon that it left our store.
