Big Cat Tales
Leap Of Faith
Few people have seen a snow leopard and even fewer have pictures of this cat. One cold evening in Hemis National Park, we found an old female snow leopard resting on a rock. Our guides told us that she had two cubs though we did not get to see them. After sometime we heard her cubs calling out to her from a distance and before we knew it, the mother went leaping over the rocks to where the cubs were.
