Shao Jian Feng, 26, holds a Yangtze Alligator (Alligator sinensis) in his home on the outskirts of Beijing. Listed by the Chinese government as a "first-class protected animal" in 1972, this species is all but extinct in the wild and is listed as "critically endangered" by the IUCN Red List. It is estimated that there are only around 100+ individuals left, mainly due to poaching and wetland reclamation, in eastern China.
