Wanderings in the wild, wild west

The Hoh Xil National Nature Reserve in Qinghai province is the country's most biologically diverse area. It's home to many species, including the Tibetan antelope. [Photo provided to China Daily]

Why did the Tibetan antelope cross the road? To get to the other side, of course. Easier said than done.

So, migrating herds do so in areas where it'd otherwise seem too remote to require crossing guards.

Conservation officers charged with protecting the threatened species halt vehicles when the creatures cross.

There are no stoplights.

Antelope don't obey traffic signals, anyway.

Hoh Xil is a place where traffic jams' causes often have hooves.
