National animals, from fierce predators and raptors to peaceful herbivores and songbirds, mark great significance in the nations they represent, whether as an emblem of war and defense or a symbol of friendship and tourism.
But these mascots aren't restricted to just nations. Look at individual states and towns, political cartoons, and even cereal boxes. Animals have been long-since used as a representation of pride and respect all over the world, and the stories contained in Symbol of a Nation show that pride in full glory.
Whether it's the fennec of Algeria or the sable antelope of Zimbabwe, show your respect for the symbols of these nations.
