A mystical hoofed creature from Slovenia that has the body of a chamois and golden horns. Many have been after its horns but none has ever caught it. Zlatorog leads hunters through dangerous paths, along caverns where the less skilled and unlucky fall to their deaths. One hunter successfully wounded the beast but it ran off. When the blood hit the ground a red flower sprouted. This red flower became the emblem of Slovenia.
Zlatorog has been viewed 1766 times.
