Incredibly wonderful by woxys Incredibly wonderful by woxys
Arjuna, young male Javan leopard from ZOO Prague, Czech republic.

Arjuna has a crazy life: he is very young, as he was born in 2012 in ZOO Berlin in Germany. Then he moved to ZOO Prague, which became the second facility (after two parks in Berlin) outside of Asia which keeps this amazing and very rare species of a leopard. After the moving, Arjuna was shy and before he could get used to his new home, the ZOO was hit by tho flood. Arjuna's new home was damaged, so he had to move to ZOO Olomouc. After few weeks, I visited Olomouc to see him, only to read "Arjuna is back in Prague" Facebook post, while I was sitting in ZOO Olomouc :XD: yeah, irony :XD: but last week I went to ZOO Prague and I finally saw him. He is incredibly wonderful!

Javan leopards is one of the smallest subspecies of a leopard. They are also very rare with only some 100 individuals in the wild :( this cat often has a melanistic form, which means that some of the leopards are yellow, other ones might be black!

My heart breaks after reading his story. He is a lovely creature and I hope that, through work in zoos, that his subspecies may be saved.
