Mammalian species available in the markets

Perhaps the animals that appeared to be in the worst shape in the various markets were the mammals.    Species available varied widely but seemed to focus on a number of central China species (effects on species such as the giant panda with this type of aggressive trapping in their habitat is unknown but would make for some interesting studies).    Captive breeding of a number of these species did appear to be occurring although snare wounds and wild stock were evident as you will see in the following segments.

 

 

Arctonyx collaris - Hog nosed badger

 

Felis catus -  Domestic cat

 

Hystrix brachyura - Chinese porcupine

 

Melogale moschata - Ferret badger

 

Muntiacus muntjak - Barking deer

 

Mycoastor coypus - Nutria

 

Paguma larvata - Masked palm civet

 

Petaurista xanthotis  - Chinese giant flying squirrel 

 

Prionailurus bengalensis - Bengal Leopard cat

 

Rhizomys sinensis - Chinese Bamboo rat

 

Vulpes sp.  - Fox
