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.

Snow Leopard(Uncia uncia)
The high mountain ridges of the Gobi are the rare Snow Leopards home. They are the biggest in the cat
family. The Snow Leopard population is decreasing, probably because of poaching and hunting of their prey.
The number one threat to their population is human population growth as marmots, which snow leopards eat a lot, are being hunted for pelt, meat and oil.

The Snow Leopard unwittingly leaps off a 400 foot high cliff, locked in a death embrace with the sheep. The two tumble down a 85 degree slope, falling onto rocks with deadly ferocity. The Snow Leopard ultimately wins and stays on to enjoy its quarry over the next few days.





If I had to choose one hunting video as most impressive of them all, no matter what animal, this is it. And by far. And even when I don´t have to, it is this one :) I had to check if it is here already and of course it was. Snow leopard is insane!! My personal opinion.

This is relatively short video about snow leopards, what kind of problems there are in conservation, but also some hope and success. Still a lot of work to do if not wanting to see this remarkable animal to go to extinction....
