More About the Animal:
When mature, fight to determine dominance and hierarchy. Males are very aggressive among one another. Rams butt heads vigorously. Form tight flock when disturbed and then flee as a group. Most active in the early and late hours of the day. Seek shelter amongst trees, in the brush, and inside ravines during harsh weather conditions. Sun themselves on exposed slopes when cold and sunny, but not windy. Seek out hilltops to catch a breeze when hot. During warm weather, drink daily. Can go two to three days without water if conditions are optimal.
Corsican Rams are grazers, eating quantities of grasses and forbs. They will also take some leaves when they can reach them or when they find them on the ground.
Breeding season occurs mainly from August to September with most births in January to March. Females have a gestation period of five months, giving birth to one to two young. Twin births are common. Males mature at 1.5 years of age while females reach maturity as early as seven months.
