The number of mouflons is smaller than that of roe deer, although climate and habitat conditions favor this species also. The special living conditions may also be observed on the physical appearance and behavior of this wild animal. The body length of mouflons ranges from 120 to 135 cm (47-53 in), the height at the withers between 70 and 88 cm (27-34 in) and the weight between 25 and 40 kg (55-88 lbs). The fresh Carpathian air and climate conditions are excellent for this animal. The ground color of their coat is brown with auburn to dark brown and even black undertones. The underparts, the interiors of the legs, the anal region and some parts of the animal’s face are whitish. Males also have two white saddle-patches on their sides and a long dark ruff. The coat of males is usually darker than that of females. The winter fur is also darker, irrespective of gender. Rams are easily distinguished from females due to their impressive horns. Their value is measured in these curved horns that can reach up to 1 m in length. In Szeklerland mouflons can only be found in game preserves, living in the wild they can be spotted on the Romanian Plain and Banat.
