Lipizzans demonstrate traditional dressage movements at the Spanish Riding School in Vienna.

Hanoverian horses are the best-known warmbloods (partbred Arabians or Thoroughbreds).
Since 1735 in Germany, Hanoverian horses have been successfully bred and developed to the highest standards. King George II of England started breeding horses for work in agriculture and with carriages. As Hanoverians came into their element, other traits were desired. After World War II, sport horses were in vogue. At each bend in the path, records have been kept and incentives given to continue breeding the best. Bred to be trained, this breed is a showstopper with its athleticism and strength.

The panda bear is the official animal of the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF), the largest nature protection organisation in the world.
The giant panda is a notable black and white coloured member of the bear family. Panda bears primarily feed on bamboo. When eating, they stand on their hind paws so that their front paws can hold their food. There are only a very limited number of Pandas living in the wild. Experts estimate their numbers, which are restricted to only a few regions of China, to be fewer than 3000. Therefore, they are amongst the world's highly endangered species.
