I work at Utah's Hogle Zoo (AZA Accredited) and we are privileged to have two Amur Leopards. They are my favorite cat at the zoo, so beautiful and you know every time you look at them and talk about them that they're literally the last of their kind. What a beautiful creature, and you captured that beautifully.

I have to go to see these things in Captivity. Out of all the animals, I adore leopards, and out of all Leopards, these are the mos beautiful. It's a pitty that's the reason why there are so few left. It makes me sick really.
