The rarest - baby Amur leopard by woxys The rarest - baby Amur leopard by woxys
Baby male Amur leopard called Cipisek/Rayo (Panthera pardus orientalis, Levhart mandzusky) from ZOO Olomouc, Czech republic :nod: not the best quality - but this animal is SO rare, that I have to share it!



Story of the photo: People, I am so happy :aww: I visited pavilion of big cats and I spotted lovely tiny fluffy ball near huge paws of adult female. I was so shocked - this kitty was ONLY one month old! :heart: his mommy took him from the box only two days ago before I saw him. The baby was so small that it was moving with problems and was very adorable :aww: Czech republic is super power in breeding extremely endangered Amur leopards! :aww:


Thank you for your comments and faves :hug:
