Amount the more interesting larger mammals are the Wildcat (Felis silvestris), Eurasian lynx (Lynx lynx), quite some Gray wolf (Canis lupus), Golden jackal (Canis aureus), Raccoon dog (Nyctereutes procyonoides), a lot of Brown bear (Ursus arctos), Eurasian badger (Meles meles), European otter (Lutra lutra), Wild Boar (Sus scrofa), Moose (Alces alces), European bison (Bison bosanus) and Chamois (Rupicapra rupicapra).
The flora is rich too; comprises around 3,450 species of vascular plants, which represents around 30% of the vascular flora of Europe. The three major vegetation zones in Romania are the alpine, steppe, and forest zones. I will be passing through all, but here are no particular species that i will be looking for.
