Globally endangered wild animals include Capreolus pygargus and Cervus elaphus in the forests and Ovis ammon and Capra sibirica in the mountainous area.
The mountainous Mongun Taiga, Tsagan Shuvuut and Turgen Uul are strictly protected areas, being the habitat of the snow leopard Uncia uncia (EN) at the northern margin of its Mongolian range; also of Tartarian roedeer Capreolus pygargus, Altai argali Ovis ammon (VU), the world's largest sheep, and Altai marmot Marmota baibacina (EN).
Steppe representatives include typical species such as lark (5 species), wheatears, pipits, as well as numerous other unusual and rare species (Chettusia gregaria, Otis tetrax, Anthropoides virgo, Circus macrourus, Сircus pygargus, Aquila rapax).
Endemic mammals also include one bat species, Eptesicus floweri, a zebra mouse species, Lemniscomys hoogstraali (DD), and two more gerbils from the genus Taterillus, T. petteri and T. pygargus.
Birds of prey include kestrel (Falco tinnunculus), Montagu's harrier (Circus pygargus), and steppe eagle (Aquila rapax).

In India we have to deal exclusively with the _Plesiometacarpi_, our nearest members of the other division being the Chinese water-deer (_Hydropotes inermis_), and probably _Capreolus pygargus_ from Yarkand, the horns of a roebuck in velvet attached to a strip of skin having been brought down by the Mission to that country in 1873-74.
In the forests one can find moose (Alces alces), Siberian roe deer (Capreolus pygargus), lynx (Lynx lynx), common hedgehog (Erinaceus europaeus), widely spread varying hare (Lepus timidus), badger (Meles meles), ermine (Mustela erminea), weasel (Mustela nivalis), common marten (Martes martes) racoon-like dog (Nyctereutes procyonoides).
In larch and cedar-larch forests, deer (Cervus elaphus), siberian roe deer (Capreolus pygargus), wild boar (Sus scrofa), siberian chipmunk (Tamias sibirica), grey-sided vole (Clethrionomys rufocanus), smaller flying squirrel (Pteromys volans), narrow-skulled vole (Microtus gregalis), and wood lemming (Myopus schisticolor) permanently inhabit.
