Amur Leopard


I had given up on this picture. It’s taken through the fence and I thought it would come out all blurred. But after some time in Lightroom it came out rather good.

The Amur Leopard (Panthera pardus orientalis) is the worlds most endangered cat. Hunted for its beautiful fur and, like many other endangered species, its habitats shrinks due to human exploitation. A solitary animal that only meet to mate. Majestic with weight up to 45 kilos, can become almost two meters long and 80 centimetres high.

Hard to find a cat phrase, ha de Gött!
