Amur Leopard

By Kim Walton    
Amur Leopard
Although it is common for a leopard to be mistaken for a cheetah due to their spots, they can actually be easily distinguished. The leopard has a heavier, stockier body and has a larger head in proportion to its body, and has rosettes rather than dots.
This is one of the pair(brother and sister at Cotswold wildlife center)I don`t usually like these places however--this is well worth the visit,nice lay out,large variety of animals,well cared for(you can tell) we were there for 6 hours and could of spent longer --if it hadn`t of closed for the day!
A really wet day (well aren`t they all) with terrible low light .
f7.1 iso 800 camera set for shade---shot through glass.

You wont see any Leopard shots of mine. Why? because I haven't seen any, thanks for rubbing it in with a great shot of one. Smile
