Some Fauna of China
Reputedly ferocious wolverines Gulo gulo, also called gluttons, in the forests bordering russia; 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; iconic giant pandas Ailuropoda melanoleuca, not closely related to the true or "red" pandas and surviving, with help, in the bamboo forests of Szechwan; 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; 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); raccoon dogs Nyctereutes procyonoides, mostly nocturnal predators, hunting in small packs and able to climb trees; 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; Chinese alligators Alligator sinensis, once almost extinct in the wild but saved by captive breeding and returned to its (restored) natural habitat; Nepal gray langurs Semnopithecus schistaceus, true langurs of the Himalayas; and various species of macaque including the rhesus monkey macaca mulatta, are some of the wild creatures of this country.
