Snow leopard photos from India

(Wednesday, April 28th, 2010)

The Snow Leopard Trust organizes several scientific works related to the snow leopard. In India, Rishi Sharma pilots a program of camera traps aimed at snow leopards. They produced quite superb images, obviously because they were setup not only with data-collection in mind.

Photos of Barbary Lions

(Wednesday, April 21st, 2010)

the Barbary Lion, sometimes named Atlas lion or Nubian lion, Panthera leo leo, is a sub-species of African lions which lived in the Atlas mountains (Morocco, Algeria, mainly). It is now totally extinct out of some zoos. But it seems that it was a great animal with a truly impressive look.

Honoring its memory, I collected a few images from the world wide web:

Borneo leopard shot on camera

(Wednesday, April 7th, 2010)

We know few things about this species (near to the Clouded Leopard) that is known under the name of the Bornean Clouded Leopard. But a scientific team recently surprised on of them in the Dermakot Forest Reserve in Malaysia. The team could shoot a short film of it while it is usually a very easily frightened animal which does not let people approach it.

It seems that this area has a quite large diversity of big cats. A place where they are still protected by the lack of human population, but will it be for long?

A new tiger species: Heavy Metal Tiger

(Thursday, April 1st, 2010)

This new species was discovered last month in Borneo and the lucky photographer just presented amazingly nice photos. Even better, one of them is good enough to allow a direct identification of gender differences and the specific fur coat of juveniles.
