Graceful Representative of Moldova

Although Aurochs represent distant relatives and predecessors of domestic livestock in Moldova, the encounter with this grandiose, yet so elegant bull is not a common thing. These animals live in herds and males often fight for the favor of females, but they also fight to show their superiority over other members of the herd. Their struggle is not naive, because males have strong and sharp horns which often can cause injuries. Given the fact that these animals frequently appear on the drawings in caves where people lived millions of years ago, this animal has a remarkable cultural importance.
