    The top nature photo studio in China, IBE Studio, has just released their Children's Day Special: Chinese edition of "BBC Survival":

    IBE???????????????????????

    All the clips are taken in the wild, in this videos you can see: a Himalayan marmot chasing a stepped polecat; two red gorals in SE Tibet; a group of Mishim takins descending to a riverbank; a snow leopard mum travelling with her two cubs in Qinghai; capped langurs in Dulong River, Yunnan; white-lipped deers; Pallas' cat; large flocks of grandalas; golden bush-robins; yellow-rumped honey-guider; Qinling lenoks and many other Chinese species rarely appear on Western-made documentaries :)

    Brilliant, thanks for pointing this out. Some fantastic footage of fascinating animals, but the clips are very brief. The entire video is only 1min 30sec, so is the special programme a full series or a single episode? :)

    Hi, devilfish. This entire video is just 1min 30sec. The studio is still in the process of exploring new good sites and collecting footages in the wild, therefore this video can be seen just an advertisement of themselves :D

    I just got to watch this now. That was brilliant. I even recognised some of those locations I think!

    Were those Shortridge's langurs at 0.26?

    Shortridge's have to be one of the nicest-looking langurs I reckon.

    Yes these Shortridge's were photographed in Dulong River. The IBE team photographed Nujiang snub-nosed monkey, Shortridge's langur and Mishmi takin in the same area.

    is there anywhere in China that a foreigner (say, myself...) can access to try and see Shortridge's langurs?

    Errr, since they are in the same area of Nujiang snub-nosed monkey, I think you still have to face TNC ......

    Errr, another place is in the southeast Tibet, near the military demarcation line between China and India, which is more dangerous for a foreigner :(
