Hanma Series | Episode 5: Beasts of Hanma

With a horse face, a pair of antlers and a humped back, this "beast" lives in Hanma National Reserve which sits in the northern Greater Hinggan Mountains. The region is colder than elsewhere at the same latitude, so the beast – a moose – is one of the Arctic visitors that can thrive there. Check the video for more interesting facts about the animal.
