Some Fauna of China
Swollen-necked goitred gazelles gazella subgutturosa, among which only rams have horns, surviving on the steppes of the west; Himalayan tahrs Hemitragus jemlahicus, beardless wild goats on the wooded slopes of that range; rare François' langurs Trachypithecus francoisi, actually lutungs and sometimes called Francois' leaf monkeys, inhabiting the woodlands of southwestern China; Asiatic elephants Elephas maximus in the diminished forests of Yunnan, where they survive because they are fed by humans (it is better than no elephants at all); Eurasian elk (moose) Alces alces, huge deer among which the males have enormously broad antlers, in the forests bordering Russia; Northern white-cheeked gibbons Nomascus leucogenys in the Mengyang Nature Reserve of Yunnan; omnivorous Siberian chipmunks Eutamias sibiricus, in appearance superficially similar to their more famous American cousins and sharing the habit of carrying food in cheek pouches; Malayan sun bears Helarctos malayanus, smallest of the bears, in the tropical forests of Yunnan province; Chinese alligators Alligator sinensis, once almost extinct in the wild but saved by captive breeding and returned to its (restored) natural habitat; and raccoon dogs Nyctereutes procyonoides, mostly nocturnal predators, hunting in small packs and able to climb trees, are some of the wild creatures of this country.
