Siberian ibexes spotted in NW China's Kunlun Mountains



As the weather gets warmer, a herd of Siberian ibexes was spotted on the steep cliffs of the Kunlun Mountains in northwest China's Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region.

Ranked as near threatened by the International Union for Conservation of Nature, the Siberian ibex inhabits high elevations between 3,500 and 6,000 meters above sea level.

The species is currently under second-class state-protection in China.

The robust animal can climb and jump effortlessly on the forbidding precipice.
