This sheep can be found at 4500 - 6000m. It avoids steep cliffs and
precipitous rocky areas. It is not a permanent resident in Pakistani
territory but moves between Chinese-Turkistan and Khunjerab-Kilik passes
in Pakistan for fodder and lambing. Hunting has resulted in the disappearance
of this sheep from the Khunjerab area while it is still found in Karchanai
nallah of Khunjerab National Park. This is a gregarious species and
lives in herds of a dozen to over a hundred individuals, which consist
of females with theiryoung, and immature males.
