There are big mountainous mammals: bears, snow leopards, wolves, yacks, ibexes, "Marco Polo" sheep hunted for their amazing spiral horns, but also predators such as the Golden eagle which is the most elegant species., Another quite strange animal, the yeti (sniejnii tcheloviek, litterally abominable man of snow) continues to haunt the Tajik mountains.
