Mammals of the forest and diurnal raptors.
The forest environment is populated by many animals who here they find food and protection. The dormouse, with the habit to build two nests, one for summer and one for winter, and the squirrel. Thisi is also the porcupine that in the day resting in his lair, located in depth, while at night goes in search of food consisting of fruits, roots and barks. Common are the weasel and badgers. The skunk, locally called "cat smell", owes its name to the odor that emanates, in situations of danger, from a gland at the base of the tail.  Among the ungulates common is the wild boar, deer and roe deer are less frequent, agile animals, good runners and swimmers. They feed on leaves, shoots, wild fruits, mushrooms and bark. Both in roe and deer only the male has horns, which fall and growing annually.
