White-paw leopard - unique Amur leopard is starring on video!
1 year ago

White-paw leopard is now not only on photos but also on video

"Land of the Leopard" is pleased to announcean incredible success: now everyone can enjoy our "hero in whitegloves" not only in photo but also in video http://leopard-land.ru/Video/Show/3! It was made possible thanks to the newly installed on the "Land of theLeopard" with a new camera traps  http://leopard-land.ru/News/27 , http://leopard-land.ru/News/29 .Although they are called camera traps, they have a video shooting mode. Ofcourse, it is necessary to say, that the video of the camera traps issignificantly inferior in quality as compared, for example, to a man-receivedeven by non-professional equipment. The recording time is limited to 1 minute,the camera cannot follow the subject, the obtained photo and video are gray inthe dark through an infrared flash.

"But we are not confused by these small flaws, -Elena Salmanova, deputy director for science and environmental education, says.– First of all, camera traps are set to obtain scientific information. Thespots must be distinctly visible on the photo pictures and video for individualidentification animal. However, the video of a rarest cat in the world innatural conditions are very important so that everyone could enjoy our Russianleopard. This video is the first received by our camera traps. Usually, we donot use the video mode because it reduces very quickly the batteries charge andthe majority of traps are installed in remote places, so we cannot change thebatteries often. We tried to test the video mode in the reserve "KedrovayaPad’" and were such lucky: we not only immediately got video of theleopard but also it was our whitepaw hero!".

This and other video camera trapped animals areavailable for viewing on the official website of the State Organization"Land of the Leopard» www.leopard-land.ru in the Video Library.
