This is a series of communication between Amur Leopard cub and the mother, Xizi. She had two cubs and the good news is that one of them is a girl! These are the rarest cats in the world, thanks to the usual reasons, namely, us humans. Sometimes it is tiring having to type that every time. There are 25-35 Amur Leopards in the wild and so any successful breeding really is something to celebrate. This was taken at WHF in Kent. She is an amazing mother and will not allow any sibling fighting! It was a real honour and a privilege to spend some time with this family. This was full frame, yes that close!
