The Altai Mountains, first of all, is a real pearl of Siberia and one of the most beautiful parts of our country. And the name “Altai” means the “Golden Mountain”. Thanks to Russian photographer Vadim Makhorov, we can enjoy the stunning views of this beautiful area, including the night sky, resembling the painting of Van Gogh. Taken at the foothills of the Altai, the series of photographs include also the images of the heaviest and largest land mammals – Zubr.

European bison, known as zubr, the heaviest and largest land mammals

In fact, Zubrs are European bisons, the heaviest and largest land mammals of Europe (weight up to 1 ton) and the latest European representative of wild bulls. By the way, Bison is an endangered animal. Of course, Altai is not Europe, but brought here for a purpose, they live here for a couple of decades. And from several pairs they expanded only to about 50 individuals. Meanwhile, sometimes tourists come, but take a look at them from a distance.
