~~A very rare Ili pika in the Tianshan Mountains in China.The animal which resembles a rabbit was first observed by conservationist Li Weidong in 1983. After three years of research, Mr Li and his team named it the Ili Pika, after the area where it is found, the Ili Prefecture on the far west side of China's Xinjiang province. | by Li Weidong~~
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.
