There is a world somewhere between reality and fiction. Although ignored by many, it is very real and so are those living in it. This forum is about the natural world. Here, wild animals will be heard and respected. The forum offers a glimpse into an unknown world as well as a room with a view on the present and the future. Anyone able to speak on behalf of those living in the emerald forest and the deep blue sea is invited to join.

Probably the King of all leopards. I have seen two Persian leopards in a zoo - the finest specimens of this cat I have ever witness. Big, beautifull, powerful, elegant and most importantly - "noble", in them there is some "Persian nobleness", old Persian brilliance  I  would say, a truly Royal beast.

2:38 Isn't  something strange with the movements of the second leopard?  Seems like its hips move sideways to the left when it strides forward.
I hope this to be successful. Such beautiful place.

It's best to upload them first to a site like Imgur, then post the link here, that way everyone can see it.
