A large group of bighorn sheep rams demonstrating the flehmen response. This is a behavior seen during the rut for many mammals in response to scents left by the females. The animal typically curls back the upper lip and bares their teeth to draw the pheromones in to the olfactory sense organ located above the roof of the mouth.
