Animals in Hungary
Hungary is located in central Europe and is landlocked on the Pannonian Basin. Hungary is primarily made up of two long stretches of plains. Running down the center of this country is its main waterway, The Danube River. Other regions of Hungary are made up of mountains, which reach up to around 3,000 feet. Hungary is also home to the largest freshwater lake in Central Europe, which is responsible for a greater number of species that live in this country.

One of the most abundant animals found in Hungary is the Brown Hare. This is the rabbit that many believe is responsible for the tradition of the Easter Bunny. The Brown Hair is far from a cute little rabbit though. They are seen in most cases fighting for male dominance or a female testing a male. Another animal native to Hungary is the
red fox
Red Fox. This fox is found mainly in the forested area of Hungary. The Red Fox in this area are related to the North American version but are much larger weighing up to 6 kg. The Red Fox is actually the most abundant and widespread carnivore in the world. The Hungarian Grey Cattle is the old beef cattle. These cattle were used for food by Hungarians in the middle ages. They are now mainly just a tourist attraction as there numbers have fallen to less then 300. The white and
Black Stork
black storks are both native birds of Hungary. They are both large birds, reaching 3 and a half feet tall. While the
White Stork
White Stork is a very common breed, the Black Stork on the other hand is very rare. Another difference between these two birds is that the Black Stork is very shy and hard to find, while the White Stork seems more fearless and can be seen all over Hungary.
