rare brown panda - The giant panda is one of nature's cutest and most rare animals. But one subspecies of giant panda is especially rare (and cute). Qinling pandas are brown-and-tan-colored instead of the usual black-and-white. They are named for the only place on Earth where they can be found: the remote Qinling Mountains in western China.
The Yannan snub-nosed monkey, a very rare weirdly nosed monkey from China that they didn't "discover" until the 1990s. It's diet consists of lichen which takes 10-15 years to recover which means they have to wander over a very large range. They also are the primate that lives at the highest elevation, except for man.
