Saiga is a type of antelope. They are known for their huge, inflatable, and humped nose which help them to filter out airborne dust during the dry summer migrations, and filter out cold air before it reaches their lungs during winter. They are a migratory species, migrating in the summer and winter and can run up to 80 km per hour in a short time.

Local people kill saiga because of its meat and horns. Horns are used in traditional Chinese medicine. Saiga is listed as critically endangered species and were once in the millions but today only less than 50,000 left in the wild.

"Tu eras também uma pequena folha
que tremia no meu peito.
O vento da vida pôs-te ali.
A princípio não te vi: não soube
que ias comigo,
até que as tuas raízes
atravessaram o meu peito,
se uniram aos fios do meu sangue,
falaram pela minha boca,
floresceram comigo."

Pablo Neruda  (via in-versos)
