Great shot of social interactions! As keystone species, it is indeed the most important species on the Tibetan plateau. Please add it to the 'Mammals of Qinghai, China' ( mission, together with any other relevant photograph you upload to Project Noah.

I got very curious about your Description,"The most important mammal in the world found on the Tibetan Plateau", Would you mind elaborating on it. Thank you, I would appreciate it.
