So precious...and whatta face!
Only when the confides of a zoo setting are the only refuge.
Endangered Species need protecting.

Thank you Cher

Cher thank you for sharing & posting ... prayers rising for all big cats and their natural habitats to be protected.

I know people don't like zoos, but their natural habitat is being destroyed and the leopards are being poached- at least the San Diego Zoo does their best to give the animals proper food, medical care, and enrichment...

Good news; I hope the programmes to breed this species in zoos work. I don't like zoos too much but, as there are now many more Amur leopards in captivity than in nature, I must admit they can help.

I hate that these magnificent creatures have to be in capitivity and to have humans stare at them all the time. I'd like to see their enclosure to make sure that it's similar to their natural habitat.
