Dating traditional mongols

Lying on the borders of several distinct zoogeographic regions (the Tibetan, the Afghano-Turkistani, the Siberian, and the North-Chinese-Manchurian), the country has a fauna combining species from each of them.The northern forests harbour lynx, maral (a subspecies of elk), roe deer, and musk deer, in addition to brown bears, wolverines, wild boars, squirrels, and sables.

The rivers and freshwater lakes contain some 70 fish species, including Asian species of salmon, trout, grayling, perch, and pike.The vast majority of the population speaks Mongolian, and nearly all those who speak another language understand Mongolian.In the 1940s the traditional Mongolian vertical script was replaced by a Cyrillic script based on the Russian alphabet.Vegetation is scanty there but sufficient to feed camels, goats, and sheep.Tracts of saxaul (xerophytic [drought-tolerant] vegetation) provide firewood.
