Due to the fact that the climate on Mount Everest is so harsh, it is no surprise that very little lives on the mountain itself. However, there are some things that have been found on Everest. Of course, the vast majority of these things have been found at the bottom of the mountain, but some are surprisingly much higher up.

The Euophrys omnisuperstes is a small jumping spider that lives 22,000ft up Mount Everest.

The Bar-Headed Goose has been seen flying around Everest at up to thirty thousand feet.

Another bird that has been known to survive on Everest is the Chough, this bird has been seen as high as 7,920 meters.
