WWF releases new video: Snow Leopard with 4 cubs

WWF has released a new video from Mongolia that shows a female Snow Leopard with four cubs. Four cubs are rare and this is the fist time that many have been recorded in that region.

Snow Leopards are among the rarest cats in the world. Illegal persecution, habitat loss and lack of prey are all problems that affect the survival of these beautiful cats.

Climate change could complicate their situation even more if Leopards (which normally live further below) move higher up the mountains.  This could lead to more competition, particularly if prey numbers are low. Future research may lead to more insight into this development.

The video showing the 4 Snow Leopard cubs can be found here:
