Sichuan Mammal Watching Tour – March 2019 – Royle Safaris Trip Report

Back in April 2019 Royle Safaris ran its second back to back Sichuan Mammals Tour with special focus on the rarest and ‘coolest’ of Chinese mammals. We were very successful, the trip resulted in 3 sightings of giant panda (plus a 4th through thermal only) as well as red pandas, Pallas’s cats, Chinese mountain cats, Himalayan wolves, Indochinese leopard cats, Asiatic golden cat and Asiatic black bear. In fact 42 species of mammals were seen or evidence of their presence was seen. You can see the trip report on the below link.

    I apologise for the original link on the Sichuan Mammals Trip Report post (above), it linked to an incomplete trip report, i have changed it and the correct trip report is linked above now.

    There’s a lot of duplication on the species list. You state 42 species of mammal were recorded, but it’s actually 28.

      I made a mistake on the first trip report I posted. However I have now uploaded the correct one with the 42 species recorded. If you click on the link now you should find the 42 species listed correctly

    Is there an alternative site for the golden monkeys.
