Videos Saving the Leopard The sleepy Leopard

At sunset of 18 February 2012, a male Leopard Panthera pardus fusca walked past three camera traps deployed along wildlife trails in Nepal's Annapurna Conservation Area. He spent 28 minutes in front of a camera trap and triggered 138 photographs. This never-before-seen footage is an exceptional and amazing look into the life of an Indian Leopard.

The survey was carried out by Raju Acharya, Yadav Ghimirey, Angie Appel, Geraldine Werhahn and Bidhan Adhikary. We are grateful to the Wuppertal Zoo Society, Germany, and the Point Defiance Zoo and Aquarium, USA, for providing financial assistance. Thanks are also due to personnel of the National Trust for Nature Conservation's Annapurna Conservation Area Project in Sikles who helped us obtain research permits and supported us logistically.
