Photo taken in August, 2013 @ BestZOO, The Netherlands

If you read my journals, you probably know the male Sri Lankan Leopard cub past away mid October.

In honor of the cutie he was, here's a lovely photo of the little sweetheart (and because I'm pretty behind with submitting my photos).

 

Species: Sri Lankan Leopard (Sri Lankaanse panter)

Latin name: Panthera Pardus Kotiya

Originates from Sri Lanka.

Current status: Endangered

Did you know:

…The Sri Lankan Leopard was only first described in 1956, by the Sri Lankan zoologist Deraniyagala.

…Its Latin addition “kotiya” is a Sinhala name, but has been often wrongly translated as “Tiger” due to incorrect information, mistaking Leopards for “diviya”, the Sinhala term for small wild cats; since then, “kotiya” has been used for Tigers, and “diviya” for Leopards.

Of course you may :) I value your asking my permission, but honestly, ít'd be an honor :aww:

Though this photo shows the female cub, who did survive ;) Her brother sadly, had a mishap while playing - a rupture in his diaphragma, I believe. Nobody knew something was the matter, until they found his body the next morning :(
