Nope. They have a national bird (pheasant) but no animal despite having loads of endemic mammals.

One day they'll probably choose the macaque but the kamoshika would be a far more apt choice.

The children seem happy to be part of the celebration. Always have loved horses.

Is that really a sincere question, @Strangerland? Perhaps that poster is referring to animals that some countries have chosen the be identified with as a national image.

Some are indigenous, some are mythical, some are adopted. Think most subsequent commenters understood the poster’s intent. Here’s one list: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_national_animals
