Noted.Thanks for the post Naoko.The leopard is the most beautiful and graceful of the big cats.When I was a little boy I always wanted a panther.My parents couldn't possibly oblige me(you can't keep them as domestic pets in Australia) so they gave me a black kitten to accomodate me.. To me he was a black leopard and a companion for 16 years.

I certainly hope those responsible for the conservation of this beautiful animal use discretion and that word of its existence doesn't spread to the wrong people...
