Local wildlife

Great Wall is the home of innumerable animals, large as well as small. Most of them can be found in the wasteland, forested area on both sides of the wild wall. Wild boars, oryx gazella and Chinese monal pheasant can be seen in the dense forests. Crows and magpies, sparrows and swallows, some pretty big birds that fly gracefully can be found in the forest areas. During autumn you could spot migrating birds on the Wall, flying high in formation.

Some interesting species, such as red fox (vulpes vulpes), Siberian Roe Deer (capreolus pygargus), Hog badger (arc tonyx collaris) and African Hoopoe (pupupa epops), dwell in dense forests.
