The ramaphant exhibits a prime example of sexual dimorphism (the sexes looking different). The males (rams) have long, curling tusks similar in appearance to a male bighorn sheep's on Earth, and they have reddish stripes on their backs. Females (ewes) have near-nonexistent tusks which barely extend beyond the top of the trunk, and they have no stripes. The males' tusks are used in much the same manner as those of the bighorn ram on Earth. They are primarily used to fend off rivals in both mating and territory. This species evolved when the tuskaphants moved from the Hydro-Nuke Savanna to the Ittiz Rocky area due to food shortage. Their single toenails became hooves, and they became much more slender and agile for leaping among the crags and rocks.
