Special video of a snow leopard – level 2

31-07-2023 7:00

Snow leopards are hard to see in the wild but an enthusiast wildlife photographer found a way to film these animals in northwest China.

The photographer followed footprints in the snow and then he hid his camera in nearby rocks. The special camera was hidden on the 4,600-metre-high mountains and it called the snow leopard’s attention.

There are only a few of these animals in China and they are under state protection. The pictures of the leopard are very special.

Difficult words: footprint (mark made by a foot), nearby (near).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.

What strategy did the photographer use to capture these special pictures of the snow leopard?
