Special video of a snow leopard – level 3
Snow leopards are hard to spot in the wild but an avid wildlife photographer found a way to capture the rarely seen creatures in northwest China.
An infrared camera hidden on the 4,600-meter-high Burhan Budai Mountains caught the snow leopard’s attention. Matse Rangja followed footprints in snow and excrement to check that snow leopards were in the area and then he hid his camera in nearby rocks. The animals are an endangered species and are under state level protection in China, making these rare pictures very special.
Interesting words: avid (enthusiastic), infrared (connected with invisible light), excrement (nice word for shit), endangered (in danger of being destroyed).
