European Elk
Norway is home to one of the largest populations of European Elk in Europe, they are the largest species of deer in Europe. They can grow up to 2.1 metres tall and can weigh 700kg, they can run at 35mph. They have a gestation period of about 8 months and breeding occurs during September and early October and a life span of around 25 years.
European Brown Bear
European Brown Bears are the largest predators on the European continent. Polar bears are also found in Europe but they are usually found on islands and not the continent itself. European Brown bears can grow to 2.5 metres tall and weigh 660kg and can run at speeds of 30mph.
Northern Hawk Owl
The Northern Hawk Owl has a distinct posture, it looks more like a hawk when it is perched giving this owl its name. They prefer to perch on top of a tall tree making them easy to see and they are curious owls so they will often go and watch people if they come into its territory. A Northern Hawk Owl often comes to my camp to see what we are up to.
Capercaillie is the largest grouse species in Europe, their name comes from an old galic word meaning horse of the forest getting its name from its call. Capercaillies are normally found in undisturbed forests, they spend most of the year on the ground but prefer to stay in the trees during the winter.
Golden Eagle
Golden Eagles have the largest distribution of any bird of prey and are the 5th largest eagle in the world. They like to fly high in the sky but are easily identified by their “V” flight position. Their wingspan can grow to 2.3 metres long and weigh around 6.7kg and can fly at speeds of 198mph. The female will lay 4-6 eggs in a large nest usually found at the side of a cliff, she will lay the eggs in March and incubation lasts for around 6 weeks.
Common European Adder
The Common European Adder is widespread in Europe and is also found in East Asia. It is the only snake that is found in the Arctic Circle. They normally grow to around 90cm and can weigh 180g. In Nordic regions, they have been known to go into Brumation for 9 months.
Common European Toad
Common European Toad as its name suggests is widespread and found throughout most of Europe and part of North Asia and northwest Africa. They are poisonous which they use to protect themselves from predation, they grow to around 15cm. And weigh around 80g.
European Musk Ox
Norway is one of the last places in the world to see the Musk ox. These impressive creatures roamed with mammoths and other ice age giants. Musk Ox are not normally aggressive but they will defend themselves if they feel threatened, usually, the bulls will form a shield and protect the females and calves from predators.
Hover Fly
Hover flies are harmless and don't poses and stinger, they are flies that have evolved to use Batesian mimicry. This is when a defenceless creature in this case a fly uses mimicry to resemble a dangerous animal such as a Wasp.
Wood Ant
Wood Ants build large nests from plant matter but unlike termites that can self-regulate the temperature inside the mound, Wood ants need to make new or change existing tunnels to create airflow to cool down or insulate their mound. Wood ants in Norway tend to be larger and more aggressive than other wood ants found in countries such as Scotland.

A percentage of my annual net profit goes to N.O.A.H an animal rights charity that works with businesses and the government to help raise awareness and rights of animals both domestic and wild.
