KEEP AWAY

By DaveNewbury
The snow leopards powerful build allows it to scale great steep slopes with ease. Its hind legs give the snow leopard the ability to leap six times the length of its body. A long tail provides balance and agility and also wraps around the resting snow leopard as protection from the cold.

Snow leopards are found in 12 countries including China, Bhutan, Nepal, India, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Russia, and Mongolia but their population is dropping.

Photo taken at Marwell wildlife park on Valentines day its mate was feeling amorous.


Thanks for your awards pm's sent and for your V's & C's on my Oystercatcher always a pleasure to read Dave
