For sure all Kurds know that we have a bird which is a symbol of Kurdistan - its called "kew". But maybe not everybody knows about other animals which are connected with Kurdistan - so i invite you to take a look.

Kurdish dog, which serves a lot of kurdish families for protection - specially in the village and mountains area is called "Kurdish Kangal Dog" (again wrongly called by turks "turkish kangal"). Its considered as the most massive and huge dog in the world:

I think very few people knows that there is a fox which has the latin name "Vulpes Vulpes Kurdistanica" - which in my opinion can be one more proof that Kurdistan exists, otherwise the animal wouldnt be named after the country. There is interesting (funny or sad) story about the name of that fox - as for sure you know turks dolesnt recognize the name Kurdistan and deny the existance of the country and its citizens, for that reason in turkya the name of the fox was officially changed to "Vulpes Vulpes" - i am not sure if its legal, as the name of the animal was established by the scientists and its valid worldwide.

This is how our Kurdish fox looks like:

Moreover - i heard (not sure if true or not) that soldiers used to kill the cat some time ago, they wanted to elimiate them as it was a part of kurdish things. They are mental, really, its not normal to act the way they doing.

Unfortunately - if i am not mistaken - the cat and the dog (kangal) are registered as "turkish" by the worlds breed societies. Not sure, need to check it. But when we will be independent - we can workon that to change it to the proper name.

Right now, i would be more pissed on them stealing our country, rather than them taking the honor of a cat. Just sayin.
I am confused by God's wisdom:
In this world of States
Why have the Kurds remained Stateless, dispossessed,
What for have they all become fugitives, condemned?

Canis Lupus Pallipes (Also known as "Indian wolf")
Summer fur:
Posted Image
Winter fur:
Posted Image
It is found in India in east to Turkey and israel in west.
They dont form huge packs as their northern counterparts do. Their packs most often consist of 6-8 Animals,however pairs are more common.
It can be distingushed from their Arabian counterpart by their darker fur,larger size and larger head.
They are,however,smaller than European wolfs. In winters their fur increases in size,and become alot longer. Their back-hair remains long even in summer.
I expect a stable population of 5000 of these wolves in North Kurdistan alone.
Their Main sources of food is Antilopes,rodents and hares. But in North kurdistan other animals,like Red deer,Ibex,Golden jackals and wild boar,is also very important food sources. They hunt in packs when hunting large animals like antilope.
There have been some reported attacks on humans,like one recently in India where 3 wolfs attacked and partily ate a policeman and one in 2005 where a pack of wolfs attacked a homeless man in northeast Iran (police intervened,but the man died of his wounds),but attacks is not common on adults.

Size:
85-115cm long
66cm High (Shoulder)
Tail: 41cm long
Weight: 14-32 Kg

Malpalon monspessulanus fuscus.
Posted Image
Posted Image
It is not a dangerous snake for humans,and its rear fangs reduce the possibility of venom injection. The poison is not dangerous,symptomatic treatment suffices to treat an envenomation. The unthreatning nature and mild presecution by man have made this snake very common throughout its range.
The species is often called montpellier snake (Latin:Malpalon monspessulanus. The last "fuscus" in the name on the top of this post is to show the subspices).
It is classified as a "Least concern" animal (not threatened at all by extinction).

Size:
Lenght: 200cm long
Weight: 1.5 Kg

I like snakes - they looked so patient. Probably i would keep one, but there is one problem - the way of feeding. They need to eat small animals like mouse and i couldnt sentenced any mouse for death :(

Canis aureus syriacus (Also known as "Syrian" Jackal)
Posted Image
Posted Image
The Canis Aureus syriacus was common in palestine before 1940,but durning a zealous anti-rabies campaign their population decreased. Today their population is uncertain.
Their diet consist mainly of rodents,hares,reptiles,young gazelles and eggs.
The jackal gives birth to a litter of 1-9 young,and their mother stops feeding them milk at the age of 4 months. They reach sexual maturity between 1 and 2 years of age.
The jackal is not the top of the food chain. Animals like Wolfs and Leopards kill jackals (Humans also kill them).

Size:
Lenght: 60-90cm
height: 30-45cm
Head: 14-18cm
Tail: 20-30cm
Weight: 5-13kg

We just discussed with heval on Facebook about our animals and turkish stupidity. Look at this article - its hard to believe, but its true. The latin name of the fox was made with "ill intentions" and its against "turkey's unity".... There are no words in any of the human languages to describe their stupidity.
