Mommy and baby by woxys Mommy and baby by woxys
Baby snow leopard and his mommy, (irbis, uncia uncia, levhart snezny) from ZOO Jihlava, Czech republic ;)

Low quality, because of the weather :( but still I hope this gift will please my best friend *Allerlei and my pal !NatureByDesign :glomp:
____________


INFO ABOUT THE ANIMAL:

Name: snow leopard (Uncia uncia or Panthera uncia)
Location: Hight mountains of Central Asia (Hindukush, Himalaya...)
Size: 1.3 m long body, 1,3 cm long tail weight: 54 kg
Diet: Siberian ibex, argali, wild goats and wild sheep, deer, boars, langur monkeys, marmots, similar small mammals and birds
Conservation status: Endangered (there are 4000 – 6600 snow leopards)
Interesting facts: snow leopards are considered to be big cats, althought they are quite small than other big cats | snow leopards are not able to roar | other name for snow leopard is ,,irbis“ | snow leopards use their long and very fluffy tail as a scarf to hide their neck and head in cold weather. Fluffy tail is also good for balance | they have small ears to eliminate loss of body heat | snow leopards have blue eyes.

Beautiful, but it almost looks as if she's giving him a 'time out' because he's been naughty, so she's refusing to look at him, and he's trying to get her attention....
