Snow Leopards In Uzbek Photo Trap

The Panthera and WWF conservation groups have shared photos of at least two snow leopards that were captured on film in Uzbekistan in November and December 2013. The images are the first photographic evidence of the endangered cats' presence in that Central Asian country, on the western edge of their known habitat. The leopards -- which are also present in 11 other Asian countries -- were caught on cameras placed in Uzbekistan's Hissar Nature Reserve, on the western edge of the Pamir Mountains.
