Whose animal is this?


TECHNICALL­Y, the Eurasian brown bear is not the official national animal of this country, with the double-headed eagle the sanctioned animal of the nation.

However it has come to be seen as a symbol of the country over centuries, with products such as ‘bear grease’ (a cure for baldness), and initiative­s such as a training academy for circus bears both contributi­ng to the world’s perception of bears as this nation’s national animal.

This country has now embraced the bear, using it as the mascot for the 1980s Olympics which it hosted.

Do you know which country we are talking about?
