Belarus - Belovezhskaya Pushcha / Białowieża Forest (1)
The second of the three postcards sent by Tanya from Minsk in The Republic Of Belarus.
The postcard shows a Red Fox (Vulpes vulpes).
The Białowieża Primeval Forest is the last remaining primary deciduous and mixed forest of the European lowlands. Located on the watershed of the Baltic and Black seas, this immense forest range consisting of evergreens and broadleaved trees is the home of some remarkable animal life, including rare and interesting mammals. The park comprises about one-tenth of the entire Białowieża Primeval Forest, which has a wide range of flora and fauna typical of both Western and Eastern Europe.
