Snow Leopard with snow

Chinese people captured snow leopard ( on video camera) in the wild couple month ago. It is a good news. Normally, it is difficult to capture snow leppard in the wild. Because the snow leopard lives primarily in the Himalaya Mountains in rocky areas. Those areas are cold and high-altitude.

I decided to take photos of snow leopard (especially with snow) in the local ZOO. It is not easy to take nice photo of snow leopard even in ZOO. I went to the Zoo couple times and got several nice pictures at last, thanks Toronto's long winter.

Something you may not know is this creature is now critically endangered and leopard's thick tail is about 1m long, almost the same length as leopard's body and acts as a scarf in cold weather when it's curled around the face and body.
