Iran is a vast country of 1.6 million sq. kilometers. The geological past and current geographic location has resulted in the appearance of open landscapes with vast mountain ranges, lush forest, arid desert and tropical seaside.
Mountains are habitat to seven distinct and internationally recognized species of wild sheep, the Persian Ibex and Bezoar Ibex. The valleys below them are home to the Goitered and Jabber gazelles, preyed upon by the fastest land animal- the Asiatic cheetah.
Forests are home to the red deer, roe deer, Persian fallow deer, brown bear and some of the largest wild boar in the world.
