Sable

Recently, the park is inhabited by sable. The beast is small, smaller than a cat. The hermit, a lover of impassable debris and fast as lightning. You can notice it only on the traces of the colon.

For his life in the harsh Siberian forests, nature rewarded him with precious fur. The animal does not have a single color, but resinous-black ones are especially appreciated. The royal sable fur coat from the shoulder has always been considered a generous gift.

Beautiful, light, thick, durable fur, in one word – “soft gold”. They were awarded for merit and deeds, bestowed on overseas sovereigns and ambassadors. In the history of Russia, sable fur for many centuries was the main currency. Thanks to sable, the Russian state expanded. The pioneers went to Siberia in the service of the king and for valuable fur coats.

The aborigines themselves sled their skis, and considered otter fur and lynx expensive. They laughed at the Russians when they took eight sables by the knife. And the Russians were perplexed over the Kamchadals, knowing the price of sable skins. A huge amount of sable was mined per year. They were handed out royally. Thus, the Grand Duke Fedor Ivanovich, as a gift to the Viennese monarch, sent forty thousand skins.

Soon nature did not ripen for man. The fate of the sable hung in the balance. Only a ban on hunting and trade saved the animal. Siberian taiga winners are not kept in cages. They are on semi-free keeping in the park. So no one else in the world dared to breed a beast. Like any predator it is fed meat. From their shelters, hollow logs, sables usually come out early in the morning and in the evening. They have excellent hearing and smell, but their vision is not among the merits of a night predator.
