On the 45-square-km (28-square-mile) basalt plateau of Giara di Gesturi live some of the island's more exotic wildlife, including a species of wild dwarf horse. Another rare species here is the mouflon, a wild sheep distinguishable from its domesticated counterpart by its lengthy, curving horns and skittishness. Long hunted for their horns, the mouflon are now endangered, with only a few surviving on Sardinia and Corsica. The plateau is off S197, north of Gesturi.
