    • Bulgarian Barak
      Bulgarian Hound ,also known as Bulgarian Barak is a Bulgarian hunting breed of dog with coarse coat.
      The Bulgarian Hound is an ancient breed of dog. It's not exactly known when it was selected. Some scholars suggest that the Bulgars came with dogs, similar to the modern Barak. The Ottoman Turks also brought hunting dogs, which also contributed in the creating of the modern breed.

    • Bulgarian Scenthound
      The Bulgarian Scenthound (Bulgarian: balgarskogonche) is a breed of hunting dog originating in Bulgaria. It is the most popular hunting breed in Bulgaria but is rare outside its borders. It is recognized by the Bulgarian Republica Federation of Cynology, a member of the FédérationCynologiqueInternationale.
      It is unknown how the Bulgarian Scenthound came into the region of Bulgaria nor where its origins lay. Some sources indicate that Illyrians,Thracians, Celts and Greeks living in the Balkan peninsula used similar scenthounds for hunting.

    • Karakachan Dog
      The Karakachan is a breed of dog that originated in Bulgaria as a mountain livestock guardian dog. Other names are Karakachan Shepherd and Thracian Mollos. The dog is named after the Karakachans, Balkan nomadic shepherds. Due to their conservative stock-breeding traditions, they have preserved some of the oldest breeds of domestic animals in Europe: the Karakachan sheep, Karakachan horse and the Karakachan dog.
      In the past, this Mountain dog was widely used in Bulgaria as a border army watchdog. Nowadays it is used primarily as a livestock guardian dog and property guard dog. The most numerous populations of working purebred livestock guarding Karakachan dogs are found in Bulgaria and the United States. The Karakachan was officially approved as a Bulgarian old native breed in 2005. The Karakachan dog may be a descendant of ancient Balkan domestic dogs, possibly since the time of the Thracians. In ancient Thracian treasures, figures were found of big, longhaired guardian dogs with curled tails. The Karachan is part of the origin of the Bulgarian Shepherd dog, with which it should not be confused.

    • Pine Marten
      The European Pine Marten (Martesmartes), known most commonly as the pine marten in Anglophone Europe, and less commonly also known as Pineten, baum marten, or sweet marten, is an animal native to Northern Europe belonging to the mustelid family, which also includes mink, otter, badger, wolverine and weasel. It is about the size of a domestic cat. Its body is up to 53 cm in length (21 inches), and its bushy tail can be 25 cm (10 inches). Males are slightly larger than females; on average a marten weighs around 1.5 kg (3.5 lb). Their fur is usually light to dark brown and grows longer and silkier during the winter months. They have a cream to yellow colored "bib" marking on their throats.

    • Brown Bear
      The brown bear (Ursusarctos) is a large bear distributed across much of northern Eurasia and North America. It can weigh from 300 to 780 kilograms (660 to 1720 lbs) and its largest subspecies, the Kodiak bear, rivals the polar bear as the largest member of the bear family and as the largest land-based predator.
      There are several recognized subspecies within the brown bear species. In North America, two types are generally recognized, the coastal brown bear and the inland grizzly, and the two types could broadly define all brown bear subspecies. Grizzlies weigh as little as 350 lb (159 kg) in Yukon, while a brown bear, living on a steady, nutritious diet of spawning salmon, from coastal Alaska and Russia can weigh 1500 lb (682 kg). The exact number of overall brown subspecies remains in debate.

    • Malpolonmonspessulanus
      Malpolonmonspessulanus, commonly known as the Montpellier snake, is very common throughout the Mediterranean basin.The snake's specific name is a Latinized form of Montpellier, a city in southern France.It is up to 2.00 metres (7 ft) long and may weigh up to 1.5 kilograms (3 lb). It is active during the day and mainly feeds on lizards.
    • Saker Falcon
      The Saker Falcon is a large hierofalcon, larger than the Lanner Falcon and almost as large as Gyrfalcon at 47–55 cm length with a wingspan of 105–129 cm. Its broad blunt wings give it a silhouette similar to Gyrfalcon, but its plumage is more similar to a Lanner Falcon's.
      Saker Falcons have brown upperbellies and contrasting grey flight feathers. The head and underparts are paler brown, with streaking from the breast down. Males (called sakrets in falconry) and females are similar, as are young birds, although these tend to be a duller brown. The call is a sharp kiy-ee.
