Chinese serow's surprise appearance in deep forest shows better environment
For the first time, the images of a wild Chinese serow have been captured in Jingde County, Anhui Province. The animal is under second-class national protection in China and usually lives in forests at an altitude of 800 meters and above.
For years, the county has implemented the forest leader system to strictly protect and manage the forest and wild animals and maintain the stability of the ecosystem. Setting up multiple infrared cameras is one of the measures taken to monitor the wildlife in the forest.
The Chinese serow has antlers similar to a deer's, hoofs similar to a cow's, a head like a sheep, and a tail like a donkey's. Because they can leap over rocks and run fast in mountainous areas, serows are rarely seen in the wild.
