From common-place wolves to endangered snow leopards, there is a myriad of wildlife to see, track, and photograph.
The central and northern forested areas are home to wolves, wild boar, elk, and brown bears. Steppes and forests host families of marmots, muskrats, foxes and sables. The Altai Mountains hide a rich wildlife; wolves, wild cats, lynx, snow leopards, and the world's largest wild sheep--Argali and Siberian ibex. The Gobi Desert and the eastern Mongolian steppe are inhabited by thousands of gazelles, the rare Gobi bear (Mazaalai), Argali and Gobi ibex, and even some endangered species: wild ass and wild camel.
Wild horses have been reintroduced to the country from captivity abroad after being unseen for about thirty years. They now populate Khustai Nuruu National Park in Central Mongolia and Great Gobi Strictly Proctected Area.
Bird life is rich, including the golden eagle, bearded vulture, and other birds of prey. There is also a variety of fish species including Taimen, Lenok Trout, and Grayling.
