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; takins Budorcas taxicolor, strange looking wild oxen, roaming the rhododendron and bamboo clad hills and mountains of western China; swollen-necked goitred gazelles gazella subgutturosa, among which only rams have horns, surviving on the steppes of the west; Eurasian wild boars Sus scrofa in the northern forests; red foxes Vulpes vulpes, shared with lands as distant as Britain and the USA but particularly crafty in Chinese folklore; rare black crested gibbons Nomascus concolor in the tropical jungles of southwestern Yunnan; arboreal clouded leopards Neofelis nebulosa, named for their marbled fur, just surviving in the forest remnants of southern China; reputedly ferocious wolverines Gulo gulo, also called gluttons, in the forests bordering russia; 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; and 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), are some of the wild creatures of this country.
