Special video of a snow leopard – level 3
In northwest China, people rarely see snow leopards in the wild but an avid wildlife photographer found a way to take their pictures. By following footprints in the snow and finding excrement, he determined that snow leopards were in the area, and he hid an infrared camera in the rocks of the 4,600-metre-high Burhan Budai Mountains.
The camera caught pictures of the endangered animal. The snow leopards are under state level protection in China, making these rare pictures very special.
Difficult words: avid (enthusiastic), infrared (made up of light that we are unable to see), excrement (the scientific word for poop), endangered (in danger of being destroyed).
