Alpha Male

A Rocky Mountain bighorn ram's horns can weigh 30 pounds more than all the bones in his body combined. Females also have horns, but they are of a much smaller size. Fighting for dominance or mating rights, males face each other, rear up on their hind legs, and hurl themselves at each other in charges of some 20 miles an hour. Ouch!
