INDONEWTRAVEL.COM - Russia has 125,000 species of animals because it is the largest country in the world in terms of land area. This large number of animal species is due to the fact that Russia has a diversity of ecosystems, such as polar deserts, tundra, forest-tundra, taiga, mixed and broadleaf forests, forest-steppes, steppes (steppe plains), semi-deserts and subtropics.

The official national animal of Russia is the Eurasian Brown Bear. Although, the Brown Bear is also the national animal symbol of Finland and Croatia. The brown bear is symbolized as a strong animal that is tenacious and persistent.

In addition to the brown bear, there are several types of typical animals that exist in the territory of Russia, such as the Eurasian Lynx and the Siberian Tiger. However, the populations of the Eurasian Lynx and Siberian Tiger are starting to decline due to encroachment, habitat destruction, and climate change.
