Although many of the creatures inhabiting this forest are shrouded in mystery, the Three-Eyed Bighorn might be one of the strangest.  On a dark night, their eyes can be seen from a very long distance.  They are thought to illuminate their surroundings to allow them to live nocturnally.  When a herd of Bighorns feel as though they've been spotted, their light vanishes and they become undetectable.  For this reason, no one has ever gotten close enough to truly observe them.
