Moufflon

This animal is the national emblem of Cyprus. It is a really shy, fleet footed horned wild sheep and, if you are lucky, you’ll see it scooting up the hillsides in the Troodos or Paphos Forests – best chances of sightings are in the summer months. They are endemic to Cyprus, with a population of only around 3000 and are the largest animal found on the island. Moufflon are officially classified as ferel by the IUCN.
