What are the horns from a bighorn sheep made from?



  1. 0 Votes

    The horn of the bighorn sheep, as well as all other true horns, are made out of living bone core covered in a special horn layer made up of keratin and other proteins. True horns occur in pronghorns and bovids (antelopes, cattle, buffalos, gazelles etc). Other things incorrectly referred to as horns, such as deer antlers, giraffe ossicones, and “horns” of lizards, giraffes, insects, and rhinos have a different makeup.
