Here is a Przewalski horse drawn on a wall of the Black Salon of the Niaux (Pyrenees) cave, 13,000 years ago, during the Magdalenian period.
It has the same characteristics as the horses in our Reserve: small size, sparsely covered tail, erect mane, and characteristic V-shaped spot flattened on the neckline. Having never been tamed by man, this equine has kept its original appearance. The cave of Niaux offers 29 paintings of horses and 54 bison. Dangerous animals (lions, rhinos, mammoths) are, however, poorly represented. The resemblance between our bison and those represented on the walls of Niaux is also striking.
