Arabian Horse

Equus Ferus Caballus

The purebred Arabian Horse is one of the most ancient horse breeds in the world that inhabit the Middle East and can be found more specifically in the Arabian Peninsula. Arabian horses are characterized by their distinctive head and high tail and are thus one of the types that are easy to identify.  They are one of the oldest and best horse breeds and are distinguished with their ability to run long distances and striking beauty. Arabian horses originated from the heart of the Arabian Peninsula and then spread to the rest of the world, either through trade or wars. They are also used to breed with other breeds to improve the capabilities of those breeds, especially in terms of patience, accuracy, and speed. Because of their strong bones and authentic Arab blood, Arabian horses have significant presence in horse riding races around the world.

 

Saker Falcon

Falcon Cherrug

The Saker Falcon is a small and strong bird and is part of the birds of prey species. They are characterized by the breadth of their wingspan compared to their size. Saker Falcons have sharp curved claws that enable them to catch their prey, and strong hooked beaks to tear its flesh. They range in color from dark brown to pale sandy yellow, with brown stripes on their feathers.  There is also another species whose entire body is covered with completely white feathers.  They mainly inhabit the ancient northern region from Eastern Europe to Western China, while some have been spotted passing through the Mediterranean region, Sub-Saharan Africa, the Middle East (especially the Arabian Peninsula), in addition to South Asia.

They can be found in the Kingdom of Bahrain in Ras al-Bar, Rumaitha, Matala, Um al-Naasan Island and Hawar Islands. Al Reem Gazelle are plant-eating mammal with a high ability to adapt to the surrounding natural environment. They are able to utilize wild plants at more than one nutritional level. They have high resistance to diseases, can withstand severe drought in the desert environment, and feed on desert plants that bloom after rainfall.
