Almost the trademark of Sweden is the moose. The moose is the largest deer animal in the world, 2 metres in height and weighing up to 400-500 kilograms. Other animals that can be found in Sweden are deer, red fox and Polar fox, hare, rabbit, beaver and seal. Predators of special interest are the wolf, lynx, brown bear and wolverine. The mountain regions host various birds such as carpercalians, mountain grouse, black grouse, and several different owls, as well as numbers of different kinds of smaller birds. There are two types of eagles, rare in numbers, spread out over the country.
