Rare clouded leopard snapped by camera trap for first time in 20 years


Recommended Posts

we are seeing more sightings due to covid limiting human activity,just give nature room to breath,there must be a breeding population .i doubt it will last much longer due to over exploitation and destruction of wildlife here ,the incompetence of govt and badly run parks.ive been to many parks in asia,africa, europe and latam,here are some of the worse run.

I'm afraid it's days are numbered now. The cruel and disgusting eating habits of certain people from this part of the world will prevail, sad to say.

 
Nah. The Thais are quite good with animal conservation. Not even the rich can get away with illegal hunting.
Add to that they have an incredible 127 national parks. 

 
We have wild elephants, tigers, leopards, bears, gaurs, monkeys, deer and badgers all running around in the forest plus over a thousand species of birds being the best in mainland Asia. Plus countless lizards and snakes. Compare that to neighboring Cambodia were they have all been wiped out and the forests all cut down. 
 

Trophy hunting is considered abhorrent to most Thais not a “sport” like in the western world. Fatty Ital-thai ate his black panther. 
 

Australia has the worst mammal extinction rate in the world.

This mountain range with its jungles straddles Eastern Thailand (Isaan) and Northern Cambodia. The Clouded Leopard is an endangered species which IS present in Cambodia (quote:-)
