The genus Pseudois includes two variable taxa, blue sheep (Pseudois nayaur) and dwarf blue sheep (Pseudois schaeferi), that exhibit notable geographic variation in morphology and ecological niche, suggesting the potential for significant adaptive differentiation between these two goats. Blue sheep are broadly distributed in the Tibetan Plateau and peripheral mountains through Central Asia, while dwarf blue sheep are only found in the gorges of the upper Yangtze River (Jinsha River) near Batang… CONTINUE READING
