This is the animal I should have shared with you on Monday, but I was under the weather, so you get it today. This is the elusive snow leopard. I've tried to shoot these awesome cats at Big Cat Rescue up in Tampa, but they are always staying inside their air-conditioned cave. I finally got to take some decent pictures at the Cleveland MetroParks Zoo. They are larger than I expected, bigger than the cheetahs or leopards I'd seen. Not as large as tigers or lions, though. Maybe some of that size is just fur, since they do live in some of the coldest places on Earth.
