Eastern Gobi desert steppe

WWF Abstract

If you were to travel inland from the east coast of China, you'd first cross a flat coastal plain. Then you'd climb up and over a chain of mountains and find yourself in a semi-arid steppe. Finally you'd reach the Central Asian deserts, called gobis. These deserts and the surrounding steppe regions may seem sparse and not very hospitable for life. But in fact they sustain many creatures, including black-tailed gazelles, marbled polecats, and greater plovers, and are occasionally visited by snow leopards, brown bears, and wolves!
