Some Fauna of 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; a number of species of giant fruit bat, including the Indian flying fox Pteropus giganteus with wingspans up to a staggering five feet, in the tropical forests of southwestern 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; several races of small muntjak deer Muntiacus muntjak, among which females are without antlers and males have small but dangerous tusks; raccoon dogs Nyctereutes procyonoides, mostly nocturnal predators, hunting in small packs and able to climb trees; rare black crested gibbons Nomascus concolor in the tropical jungles of southwestern Yunnan; shaggy coated wild yaks Bos grunnicus, larger than their domestic counterparts, on the wild plateau of Tibet; 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 wild boars Sus scrofa in the northern forests; and Eastern black crested gibbons Nomascus nasutus, critically edangered anthropoids in the Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region, are some of the wild creatures of this country.
