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 m 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 or yellow eyes.

Oh okay. Will you post more snow leopards next time you upload then? I just love the shots you are able to get of the animals. My favorite of them are the wolves and the snow leopards. The fenix foxes can be pretty cute too.

Oh goody =) Can't wait. I always wanted to take photography but never did. I don't think I would be able to get into it enough to take such wonderful pictures as most of the photographers I see on here. I do enjoy seeing how others take photographs though.

Woxy this one is even more magnificent than usual for your photos. You have such an eye and style for the big cats especially, just as much as you do you with wolves.

Incidentally, getting to see your WONDERFUL winter photos, makes me forget the terrible tropical summer heat of my part of Australia!

Měla bys napsat journal, proč tolik těch podpisů na fotkách (pokud jsi ho teda někdy dřív nesepsala). Koukám, že to některé lidi zaráží :D
Ale docela tě chápu, s těmi zloději je to hnus -.-

Aaaale fotka je fakt nádherná . . . vyfoť jich víc, víííc 8D

spíš se to sešlo, lidi se zeptají jednou za čas :D
já si dřív taky říkala, proč si lidi fotky podepisují - ale ono FAKT není příjemné vidět lidi, co tvé fotky v klidu nahrají a ještě tvrdí, že jsou jejich. A ty podpisy je skutečně pomáhají usvědčit :nod:

díky a pokusím se, irbisové jsou úžasní!

To teda jsou! Člověk by je až chtěl obejmout jak huňaté plyšáky :D Ale naštěstí mě trochu do reality vrací zážitek z Plzně, kde byli v takové trochu agresivnější náladě :) Hold, šelmy :)
Btw mají radost ze sněhu, když jsou v Zoo? Nikdy jsem je takhle v zimě neviděl naživo . . .

really? dear, do you know how many times they stole my photo during LAST 48 hours? do you know that? Just here on dA, my photos were reposted FOUR times during last 48 hours - by several different persons.

believe me, I DO need to put a LOT of marks on my photos. Or should I make it easier for thieves, heliconius?
