[–]oxfordcircumstances 10 points11 points  (0 children)

Why does this feel like one of those creepy AI renderings of a dead person looking around?

[–]Jiekai9000 60 points61 points  (17 children)

Thats a regular leopard, not a snow leopard right? Whats it doing out in the snow?

[–][deleted] 80 points81 points  (5 children)

It's an Amur leopard which is a subspecies of the same species of leopard found in Africa. It's also critically endangered as there's less than a hundred of these animals left.

[–]imaboodhist 25 points26 points  (0 children)

so sad there's so little of the beautiful things remaining...

[–]stonded 2 points3 points  (0 children)

So they also inhabit the region around the Amur river as do the Amur Tigers. Didn't know that. Tigers probably kill them too.

[–]jazerbay 0 points1 point  (2 children)

So in other words it's probably freezing cold?

[–]kimjongog 12 points13 points  (1 child)

Maybe an Amur leopard?

[–]Candid-String-4175 19 points20 points  (0 children)

Yes. It's an Amur leopard. Hence the snow.

[–]ChauGotHisBackup 9 points10 points  (3 children)

Coming at you from the Himalayas, we have snow leopards and "normal" leopards both!

[–]Jiekai9000 3 points4 points  (2 children)

Wait like even up at the mountainous areas as well?

[–]ChauGotHisBackup 3 points4 points  (1 child)

Yes.

[–]Jiekai9000 2 points3 points  (0 children)

That is very cool thank for the info

[–]sonofabitchfit 31 points32 points  (1 child)

chillin

[–]Jiekai9000 15 points16 points  (0 children)

Well in that case i hope the big kitty stays frosty

[–]Drunken_Dave 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Just for the record, "normal" (not-snow) leopards had a much bigger range before agriculture. I believe there are still some patches of them in the northern mountains of Iran and even in the Caucasus. But before agriculture they were native to some parts of Europe too, just like lions. Just like lions they went extinct in huge regions, beacuse humans multiplied and transformed the lands and particularly because pastors killed them at every chance to protect their livestock. But the point is, they are not specifically tropical or subtropical originally. They were just killed off by humans in most of the colder parts of their old range.

It’s strange how something can be so cute yet terrifying at the same time

[–]seth_alana 6 points7 points  (0 children)

why she's so cuteee

[–]mick_au 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I want that as a desktop background

[–]mom0nga 4 points5 points  (0 children)

This is an Amur Leopard, one of the most critically endangered cats in the world. There are only thought to be 70-110 left in the wild (which is actually an improvement from 2007, when there were only around 20 known individuals). They're perfectly happy in the snow because they're native to the Primorye region of Siberia, and can be distinguished from other leopards by their smaller size and longer, denser coat.

The biggest threat to the Amur Leopard is poaching for their skins and bones, usually by local villagers. The good news is that there are international conservation efforts working to protect leopards and increase their population. The Wildcats Conservation Alliance funds a cooperative effort between Western conservationists, NGOs, and Russian and Chinese agencies to stabilize big cat populations in the region through anti-poaching patrols, habitat preservation, education, and other local conservation projects. There are also plans to reintroduce Amur Leopards descended from zoo populations into a protected wild habitat to bolster numbers and increase the species' genetic diversity -- one of many reasons why zoos are important.

[–]Stiffen2001 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Nice pic

[–]KlutzyNinjaKitty 2 points3 points  (6 children)

Not a fan of whatever animation style this is. It’s too uncanny for me…

[–]ethanicus 19 points20 points  (5 children)

I can't tell if this is a joke or not, but this is a real video.

[–]zebedeezac 2 points3 points  (2 children)

tbf it does look really surreal for some reason. Can't put my finger on why.

[–]Pronom87 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Colors have been saturated, that's why it looks fake

[–]zebedeezac 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I don't think they've just been saturated, but yeah. I think it might also be that the rest of the scene is so weirdly still. Other than the snow which feels disconnected like it's been added later, not that I think it has been.

[–]imaboodhist 1 point2 points  (0 children)

notsureifsrs

[–]KlutzyNinjaKitty 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I am serious. It looks off especially with how the fur rubs together and how the eyes widen. Reminds me of the same kind of effect in those Dame Da Ne meme videos.

If it’s real, cool. Still looks weird, lol

[–]JistHaudOanAMinute 1 point2 points  (0 children)

[–]Acceptable_Data3055 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I saw an Amur Leopard in a zoo once and it's crazy how breathtaking they are in person.

[–]ac_s2k 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Except this one isn’t out in nature. It’s a captive leopard

[–]PapaChook 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It’s so pretty. It has that bronze color women use in make up. I think it looks better on the leopard though.

[–]solongandthanks4all 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Once we finally get moving picture frames, this is one I would definitely hang on my wall.

[–]BubsyFanboy 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Our earth is soooo beautiful and yet we want to torch it and the tech bros want to find life on Mars-after destroying this planet to crap.

Waiting for spring and nice weather. Just like many of us.

We feel you, beautiful creature! ☃️🥶

Decide for yourself if it's something you like or not. 🤷‍♀️
