Some Fauna of China
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; 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); Chinese alligators Alligator sinensis, once almost extinct in the wild but saved by captive breeding and returned to its (restored) natural habitat; Tibetan wild asses, also called kiangs Equus kiang, roaming the open spaces of the Tibetan plateau, where their coats grow long during the winter; beautiful red pandas Ailurus fulgens, vegetarians with raccoon-like faces, in the temperate mountain forests of western 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; Sambar deer Rusa unicolor in the wooded, tropical areas of southern China; a number of races of argali Ovis ammon, including Marco Polo sheep (Pamir argali), roaming in the mountainous terrain of Tibet and northwestern China; various species of macaque including the rhesus monkey macaca mulatta; and wild dogs Cuon alpinus, also called dholes, rare but surviving in southeastern Tibet and possibly other areas, are some of the wild creatures of this country.
