Every day is a struggle for our amazing, beautiful animals in the wild.
With between 4,000 and 6,500 snow leopards left in the wild they are Endangered. Due to loss of habitat, poaching, climate change and conflict with humans as they search for food.
My favourite snow baby Makalu at Dudley zoo, a 7 month old male.

So sad, such a gorgeous creature! SadSad

Similarly in India, the rate of Tiger ( Our National Animal ) is just restricted to 1706 only! And for similar reasons.

Such a shame. Sad

Tigers are my absolute favourite but love all big cats.

Not everyone has same thinking though. Majority of population have tiger as favorites, or big cats to be more general, but unfortunately for hunting Sad

Smells like Momma Cat, one of her cubs checking the scent of some urine (doesn't look too good! Wink )

Took this one at a zoo, about the only place I will ever have the chance.

Beautiful shots guys. Same for me, only place I'll ever see one is a zoo. Our little snowball is nearly 8 months and just fabulous. Grin
Breaks my heart knowing their plight, same with my beloved tigers and so many of our amazing animals.

One of my favourite scenes in the BBC Planet Earth Series is the filming of the Snow Leopards hunting in the mountains; it is worth the price of the DVDs by itself, an amazing display of patience and camera work by the photographer.
