The squirrel (Sciurus vulgaris) is a mammal with reddish fur, which you can easily see jumping from one branch to another. It collects all day long acorns, jir, hazelnuts and nuts, for the harsh period of winter.

The Roe deer (Capreolus capreolus) is also a mammal with reddish fur, which with a little luck you can see around.

About the fox (Vulpes vulpes) you have surely heard from the story „The bear fooled by the fox” of Ion Creanga. It has bushy mustaches, pointed, short ears, directed upwards and exceptional hearing.

The spotted woodpecker (Dendrocopos major) is considered the sanitary of trees. It feeds on various insects. Surely, you’ve heard her unmistakable hammering before.
