An Aoudad (Ammotragus lervia) aka Barbary Sheep [small animal in the foreground] has an extraordinary ability to go without drinking water for long periods of time if neccessary, obtaining all the moisture needed from the vegetation eaten. These sheep live in small groups comprised of old and young animals of both sexes. They are expert climbers and can ascend and descend slopes so precipitous that man can negotiate them only with great difficulty. Consequently, they are difficult to hunt.
