I'm on the trail by the light of the moon
But I always stay one step behind when I'm following through
There's a time when it's right when I'm right behind you

I'm out to kill and if I can then I will so don't be surprised
When I finally attack when you don't watch your back
You were dead from the start as a matter of fact.
(Twisted Tower Dire - Snow Leopard)

This is a Snow Leopard (Uncia Uncia or since lately Panthera Uncia) from the zoo of cologne.

One seriously fluffy cat.

This was my favorite animal at one point, and I'll admit I'll always have a space in my heart reserved for the Snow Leopard. They're beautiful. Also: great shot! Where do you find all of these big cats that you photograph?

Oh, never mind; I just read "zoo of cologne" in the description, lol. Do you often travel to do this? It must be pretty amazing...

Beautiful. Was this at a zoo? If so, which one?

Thank you :)
I took this capture of one of the most wonderful animals at the zoo of cologne, Germany. It also is written in the description..

Ach ja, damals als du mir Twisted Tower Dire vorgestellt hast, das waren noch Zeiten. Brauch ich wirklich so lange bis ich zum Kommentieren komm? xD

Aber ernsthaft, das Photo ist fantastisch geworden. Der Fokus passt, die Komposition passt und du hast ihn vor einem schönen Hintergrund erwischt. ^.^

ein sehr schönes Tier, ich liebe Schneeleoparde!

Dem kann ich zustimmen, es sind wundervolle Lebewesen. Es ist wirklich schade, dass der Schneeleopard auf der Roten Liste bedrohter Arten steht :(
