Animals play a major role in Chinese painting. The mammals most seen in Chinese art include tigers, dogs, cats, water buffalo, wolves, squirrels, lambs, deer, horses, bears, rabbits, and even pigs, bats, and mice. Birds are heavily portrayed in Chinese painting, particularly roosters, eagles, crows, egrets, ducks, herons, parrots, and owls. While many types of fish are seen in Chinese art, goldfish and carp are most common.
