Moose's antlers fully grow within three to five months, making them one of the fastest growing organs in animals.
Known as elk in Europe, moose are the largest of all the deer family. These large animals have elaborate forking antlers and long dark brown hair. They live in northern forests where alder, aspen, and willows abound. Moose are particularly well adapted to cold weather and prefer to live where summer temperatures don't get any hotter than sixty degrees. They eat newly grown leaves, as well as the tips of twigs. Their twelve sets of broad teeth at the rear of the mouth, six pairs of molars and six pairs of premolars, help them grind up even the toughest woody plants. Their rutting (or breeding) season lasts from early September to late October. Each year during the rut they lose their antlers; they then re-grow another set during the winter that follows. Most of the year, moose stay away from people, but during rutting season they've been known to charge people, cars, and even houses!

Appaloosa is a horse breed that springs from the Spanish horse that was imported to North America in the 18th century. Almost every Appaloosa has a square physique which is typical for Western horses.
This also includes a small head with big, awake eyes and a straight nose line. They have a strong back and are muscular altogether. That is why they are fast and agile. In particular their striking fur speckles are characteristic for this breed.

The Knabstrupper is among the oldest of breeds registered in Europe.
In 1812, the Knabstrupper breed began with Flaeb's mare, also known as Flaebehoppen, who was bred at Knabstrupgaard in Denmark after a series of purchases. Known for being loud in color, Knabstruppers were highly sought after in Europe. Eventually being bred with Appaloosas, this step ensured less inbreeding and success in the reestablishment of Knabstruppers. Divided into three different types, Knabstruppers are typified as Pony, Baroque, and Sport, each with their own individual strengths. All Knabstruppers are prized for their health and kind temperament.

Zebras have night vision which helps them to keep an eye on their predators.
These sleek, striped equids live in the savannah grasslands of eastern and southern Africa where they spend most of the day grazing on grass, leaves, bark, roots, and stems. Each zebra's pattern of stripes is unique. The plains, or common, zebra sport wide stripes on their bodies -- that continue to the undersides -- along with thinner 'shadow' stripes on their hind quarters. Their excellent hearing and vision help them escape predators. They usually live in family groups of one stallion and several mares but often come together in large herds of several hundred zebras. And, once a year, hundreds of thousands of zebras gather to migrate in search of food and water. These herds sometimes mingle with wildebeests, ostrich, and antelope. Zebras tend to be pretty skittish -- who can blame them with all the lions and hyenas around -- and really noisy. Their whinnies, yelps, and barks are their way of communicating with each other. They never wander too far from a source of water and can live about thirty years in the wild.
