They may look like Martians but the saiga antelopes are special, says veterinarian Richard Kock. Not only are they extremely fast, they are adapted to both the freezing and scorching temperatures of the Kazakh steppe.
Perfectly adapted to the Kazakh steppe's freezing and scorching weather, the saiga antelope is unique, says this vet.
Like the ocean, the steppe seems an endless, vast expanse. In winter it appears desolate but it spring it awakens with life and is full of surprises.
Small and colorful, nudibranchs brighten up the ocean floor. But these seemingly defenceless slug-like creatures are dangerous too.
A year after a mysterious event wiped out more than half of the world's saiga antelope population, scientists and vets are still trying to figure out what killed them. It's a race against time.
