Some Fauna of China
Wild dogs Cuon alpinus, also called dholes, rare but surviving in southeastern Tibet and possibly other areas; several races of small muntjak deer Muntiacus muntjak, among which females are without antlers and males have small but dangerous tusks; rare François' langurs Trachypithecus francoisi, actually lutungs and sometimes called Francois' leaf monkeys, inhabiting the woodlands of southwestern China; Sambar deer Rusa unicolor in the wooded, tropical areas of southern China; Przewalski's horse (Mongolian wild horse) Equus przewalski, similar to those represented in prehistoric French cave paintings and reintroduced to the steppes of northwestern China from captive European populations such as the one at Woburn Abbey; endangered tigers Panthera tigris, including a few Bengal tigers in southern Tibet, Amur tigers (Siberian tigers) near the border with Russia, Indonesian tigers in Yunnan and South China tigers reintroduced from a "rewilding" program in South Africa; Himalayan tahrs Hemitragus jemlahicus, beardless wild goats on the wooded slopes of that range; beautiful red pandas Ailurus fulgens, vegetarians with raccoon-like faces, in the temperate mountain forests of western China; 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; and red foxes Vulpes vulpes, shared with lands as distant as Britain and the USA but particularly crafty in Chinese folklore, are some of the wild creatures of this country.
