Red deer, musk deer, steppe cats, Persian gazelles, and Mongolian jerboa arrived on the plateau. Horselike ldang from western Asia moved into Tibet, as did wild yak, which were widespread in Asia at this time.

The timing of the development of Tibetan wildlife is still uncertain. Most may be new arrivals during the last Ice Age, but older species seem to exist as well. In most regions of Tibet, scientists generally report both new and old species. Older forms from warmer times sometimes hide out, finding small "tropical zones" in the cold alpine steppe.
