Desert bighorn sheep (Ovis canadensis nelsoni) is a subspecies of bighorn sheep found in the desert Southwest United States and the northern regions of Mexico. The characteristics and behavior of desert bighorn sheep generally follow those of other bighorn sheep, except for adaptation to the lack of water in the desert; bighorn sheep can go for extended periods of time without drinking water.
