It's not fair  Angry
Why do you have to have all the cool throlls. In Denmark a grown up throll should appearently be about the size of a 10 year old child.

Because they have places like Trollveggen, Trolltinden and the Jotunn Mountains to hide in. Denmark's geography favours smaller trolls. laugh
It ssucks. I wish we had some more awsome nature.
The coolest thing we have is northern Europes largest moving dune Sad

Then maybe you have northern Europe's largest moving dune troll... Cheesy

I haven't seen him yet, but if I do I'll let you know Wink

I wouldn't call it exemplary. All it takes is a visit to any souvernier shop anywhere in Norway, where you'll find figurines of all the things listed above (along with vikings, norse gods, and whatnot) all over the place.

Apparently Norwegians value their traditional culture more than Finns do. Finnish souvenir shops sell postcards and Laplandish junkie, not mythological creatures.

The noble American Jackalope. It's pretty much my favorite animal.
