Afghan Snow Leopards

According to the Huffington Post,
there are only 4500 - 7500 of these elusive
big cats in existence, 
in Central Asia.
They are considered to be
the most elusive big cats
on the planet.
Recently, cameras were able to catch
photos of them in the
Wakhan Corridor of Afghanistan.

They are truly beautiful creatures!
But they are threatened by people
in China who feel their
bones and other bodily parts
will enhance sexual prowess!

May they continue to thrive
in the land for which
they are named.

Beautiful cats, sad story. People are such jerks.
