i ve search it on the net,their are hundreds of styles of the chinese kung fu,as a whole they are seperated into the south ones and the north ones just like the south shaolintemple and the north.the tiger-crane style which ive refer to is of the south ones,and those snake,dragon,lepord,monkey,or even durk as well.the wing tsun kungfu which bruce lee learn at first is also among the south ones,which is created based on a fight between a crane and a snake

There is Five Animals Kung Fu. It has Tiger, Crane, Lepord, Monkey, and Dragon. I teach some Praying Mantis Kung Fu. There are also animal forms in traditional Shaolin. Traditionally there are twelve animals, but I've read four different lists. There are other animal based Kung Fu arts also.
