Denmark Mute Swan The Mute Swan is one of the heaviest flying birds from 9 to12 kg, ranges from 140 to 160 cm long. It is protected but this has not prevented illegal hunting and poaching.
  • 2. Europe France List of National Animals Gallic Rooster The Gallic rooster, colloquially named Chanteclair, had been a national emblem ever since, especially during the Third French Republic. Today, it is often used as a national mascot. The France national rugby league team are known as the Chanteclairs referring to the cockerel's song. Germany Golden Eagle The Golden Eagle is one of the best-known birds of prey in the Northern Hemisphere. They are considered the most superlative fliers among eagles and perhaps among all raptorial birds. They have seven main hunting techniques with different individual variations. Greece Dolphin Dolphins are marine mammals closely related to whales and porpoises. They vary in size from 1.2 m and 40 kg up to 9.5 m and 10 tons. They have acute eyesight, both in and out of the water, and they can hear frequencies ten times or more above the upper limit of adult human hearing. Dolphins are regarded as one of Earth's most intelligent animals. Hungary Turul The Turul is the most important bird in the origin myth of the Magyars. It is a divine messenger and became the symbol of power, strength and nobility. The Turul represents the god's power and will. The Turul was seen as the ancestor of Attila, and it was also the symbol of the Huns.
  • 3. List of National Animals Italy Europe Italian Wolf The Italian Wolf is also known as the Apennine Wolf. It is a medium wolf with an average weight of 24 - 40 kilograms for a male, females are usually 10% lighter. The Italian Wolf is a nocturnal hunter which feeds primarily on medium sized animals. Spain Bull A common misconception widely repeated in depictions of bull behavior is that the color red angers bulls, inciting them to charge. In fact, like most mammals, cattle are red-green color blind. In bullfighting, it is the movement of the matador's cape, and not the color, which provokes a reaction in the bull. United Kingdom Bulldog The English Bulldog is popularly used to represent England or the United Kingdom. It has been associated with Winston Churchill’s defiance of Nazi Germany. Bulldogs are known for getting along well with children, other dogs, and pets They can be attached to home a lot.
  • 4. North and South America Argentina List of National Animals Jaguar The Jaguar is a near threatened species and its numbers are declining. Threats include loss and fragmentation of habitat. While international trade in jaguars or their parts is prohibited, the cat is still frequently killed by humans, particularly in conflicts with ranchers and farmers in South America. Brazil Macaw The majority of macaws are now endangered in the wild and a few are extinct. The greatest problems threatening the macaw population are the rapid rate of deforestation and the illegal trapping for the bird trade. Canada Beaver The beaver works as a keystone species in an ecosystem by creating wetlands that are used by many other species. Next to humans, no other extant animal appears to do more to shape its landscape. Beavers potentially even impact climate change. USA Bald Eagle Bald Eagles are not actually bald; the name derives from an older meaning of "white headed". The adult is mainly brown with a white head and tail. The sexes are identical in plumage, but females are larger than males. The beak is large and hooked. The plumage of the immature is brown.
  • 5. List of National Animals India Asia and Africa Indian Peacock Indian Peacocks are best known for the male's extravagant display feathers which, despite actually growing from their back, are thought of as a tail. The ornate train is believed to be the result of female sexual selection as males raise the feathers into a fan and quiver them as part of courtship display. Japan Tanuki Among the most recognizable images in Japanese folk art is a rotund, jolly little bear-like animal, wearing a large straw hat and carrying a bottle of sake. This is the famous and beloved tanuki, sometimes called the "raccoon" of Japan. Egypt Golden Eagle The Golden Eagle is one of the best-known birds of prey in the Northern Hemisphere. They are considered the most superlative fliers among eagles and perhaps among all raptorial birds. They have seven main hunting techniques with different individual variations.
