Here’s a shot of a “Qilin” (click here for a full description) at the Summer Palace in China. The Qilin is a bit different than the guardian lions (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chinese_guardian_lions) which are more commonly seen. Note the antlers. I took this one while we were visiting Beijing and Xi’an in 2007.
