    Today the wildlife of Kazakhstan includes 158 species of mammals, 458 species of birds,52 species of reptiles, 12 species of amphibians, and 150 species of fish, 19 species of animals and 23 of birds. They are included into the International Red Book of rare or endangered animals. In the mountains of the Zailiiski Alatau alone, there are about 50 species of mammals, 141 species of birds and 3 species of fish. In the steppes herds of koulans and jeirans (Asiatic antelope) graze.
    Deserts are inhabited with giant lizards, snakes and spiders. On the peaks of its mountains snow leopards — mountain turkeys occur. Kazakhstan is inhabited with birds, marmots, wild sheep, the Tien Shan brown bear, flamingoes, and swans.

Snow leopard

In Kazakhstan, people always respected this leopard as the strongest and proudest animal. The beautiful wild cat is a perfect rock climber and its favourite habitat is on mountain peaks of the Tien Shan. The snow leopard (Panthera uncia syn. Uncia uncia) is a large cat native to the mountain ranges of Central and South Asia. It is listed as endangered on the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species because as of 2003, the size of the global population was estimated at 4,080-6,590 adults, of which fewer than 2,500 individuals may reproduce in the wild.
Snow leopards are carnivores and actively hunt their prey. Like many cats, they are also opportunistic feeders, eating whatever meat they can find, including carrion and domestic livestock. They can kill animals more than three to four times their own weight, such as the bharal, Himalayan tahr, markhor and argali, but will readily take much smaller prey, such as hares and birds.

Falcon – Baloban

Since ancient times Kazakhs have used falcon – balobans as hunting birds. Bcrkutchi — professional hunters – took balobans chickens out of their nests and trained them for hunting. This tradition still exist. Perhaps the best place to see falcons in the wild is in the Altai of the northeast Kazakhstan. 

Adult falcons have thin tapered wings, which enable them to fly at high speed and to change direction rapidly. Fledgling falcons, in their first year of flying, have longer flight feathers, which makes their configuration more like that of a general-purpose bird such as a broad wing. This makes it easier to fly while learning the exceptional skills required to be effective hunters as adults. Falcon, an avivore, is a bird of prey that can be trained to hunt other birds and animals. These falcons eat small birds, raw meat, and live animals such as mice and rodents. Young falcons are trained in order to hunt and they start by going after dragonflies and other large bugs.


Strong and light-footed, these Asiatic wild asses have always surprised people with their grace and beauty. Hunting brought these animals close to extinction.
Like many other large grazing animals, the onager’s range has contracted greatly under the pressures of poaching and habitat loss. Of the five subspecies, one is extinct and at least two are endangered (their status in China is not well known). Onagers are a little larger than donkeys at about 290 kilograms (640 lb) and 2.1 metres (6.9 ft) (head-body length), and are a little more horse-like. They are short-legged compared to horses, and their coloring varies depending on the season. They are generally reddish-brown in color during the summer, becoming yellowish-brown in the winter months. They have a black stripe bordered in white that extends down the middle of the back.
