Ukrainian Saola (SciiFii).jpg

The Ukrainian saola (Pseudoryx ukrainis), also known as the False japanese saola, Ukrainian spindlehorn, Ukrainian unicorn, and the European saola, is a species of forest-dwelling bovine endemic to Ukraine as well as eastern and central regions of Europe & Asia (Hungary, Poland, Kazakhstan, Slovakia, Belarus, Japan (introduced), western Russia). The Ukrainian saola originally didn't exist, but has since created by SciiFii and introduced throughout the forests, forest-steppes, steppes, and Carpatian mountains to help boost biodiversity. Related to cattle, goats, and antelopes, the closest living relative of the Ukrainian saola is the Asian saola (Pseudoryx nghetinhensis). The Ukrainian saola is slightly larger in size than the Asian saola and has a extra pattern . Like other bovids, the Ukrainian saola is a herbivore and primarily feeds on broad-leaved shrubs and trees, although it can also feed on fruits, flowers, twigs, and barks. The Ukrainian saola is active in the day as well as at night, but prefers resting during the hot midday hours. Unlike other species of saola (Pseudoryx sp.), the Ukrainian saola is social and is known to live in groups of around 3-20 individuals. Grouping patterns of the Ukrainian saola resembles those of the Asian saola. Unlike the Asian saola, the Ukrainian saola is much more tolerant to stress and habitat disturbance, allowing it to adapt to a wider range of forested habitats than its Asian relatives. The conservation status of the Ukrainian saola is Least Concern due to successful conservation efforts and its tolerance to many of the human activities
