Infrared cameras capture rare wildlife species in SW China's Yunnan

Infrared cameras captured video footage of more than 20 different kinds of wild animals under China's national protection in a nature reserve in southwest China's Yunnan Province. 

The footage, released by the Baima Snow Mountain National Nature Reserve, shows various kinds of rare species, including Yunnan snub-nosed monkeys, Chinese serows, macaques, forest musk deer and black bears. 

The reserve is located in Yunnan's Diqing Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture. Covering an area of about 2,821 square kilometers, it is China's largest nature reserve protecting Yunnan snub-nosed monkeys and their habitat.
