The ‘aoudad’ or barbary sheep (Ammotragus lervia) originated from the rocky arid mountains of Northwestern Africa. Not surprisingly, these sheep have successfully proliferated in the hill country of Central Texas as an introduced species. The strong and agile sheep are shy but can occasionally be seen darting up a hillside only to be lost from view within seconds. The painted aoudad is resting quietly next to an ashe juniper (Juniperus ashei), or post-cedar or cedar, another species that seems well-suited for the hill country. The ‘model’ aoudad was spotted at close range while driving through the Fossil Rim nature park in Glen Rose, Texas.
