|Clouded leopard (En)|
Panthère nébuleuse ou panthère longibande (Fr)
Neofelis nebulosa (Lat)
The clouded leopard is a felid found from the Himalayan foothills through mainland Southeast Asia into China, and has been classified as vulnerable in 2008 by IUCN. Its total population size is suspected to be fewer than 10,000 mature individuals, with a decreasing population trend. They have exceptionally long, piercing canine teeth. The upper pair of canines may measure 4 cm (1.6 in) or longer. Clouded leopards are the most talented climbers among the cats.
Shot at Beauval parc.

Amazing animal and fantastic portrait JeanMarie!
The details you captured here is super. The Clouded leopard is a striking mammal and it is great to see its fine features from so close-by. This is an excellent portrait and one can see the emotion so clearly in its eyes, and the other prominent features like the patterns on its fur, the whiskers and its teeth is seen with great clarity. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.
Great portrait! Lots of action going on here! Love the colortone in the pic!
