Rocky mountain bighorn sheep, Amelia


Welcome, Amelia and Camille

January 15, 2024 | 1 minute read

Female bighorn sheep ‘Amelia’ and ‘Camille’ have joined our herd! The two of them came to us last month and settled in almost immediately.

Amelia can be distinguished by her blue ear tag and her distinctive horns – they are the longest horns of any of our females and are slightly curved towards her face. While she still likes hanging out with her buddy Camille, she has been friendly with the other members of the herd.

Camille has a purple ear tag, but you can also distinguish her by her smaller size. She is confident and interested in people, so you may see her up close to the fence near the viewing area. Look closely – she always seems to be smiling for the camera!

Are you wondering what our ram ‘Bill Williams’ thinks of the new female additions? Let’s just say we’re seeing a lot of the Flehmen’s response!

Stop by to welcome our new additions to the zoo!
