[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Central Alborz sheeps in Sorkhe-hesar national park.
In summer, males & kids form seperated herds and also males. And both choose seperated territories during summer.

They are natural hibrid of Urial sheep (with 58 cromozom) & Armenian or Red sheep (with 54 cromozoms). They have 54-58 cromozoms.

These are 33. Can you see them?
Not many years ago, here, they can be seen in big herds (number of hundreds).

The picture is cropped.
