This is no Panthera uncia but a variant of the calico family which all maybe familiar with. I must admit that I got a bad brush with snow leopards.Two of my precious acquisitions succumbed to internal ailments and this one I hope is not another nemesis to me.
Description
Snow leopard has a natural whiter base colors which varies from smokey grey to lighter underparts.A totally white based specimen is extremely hard to find. Often we find spread of red smudges or widespread orange hue that tarnishes the milky white skin
This one has a nice stocky build and a small tail(a difficult find among calicos).It is also blessed with a good pronounced hood which is another deficit among the calicos.

Hopefully this one is no jinx to me peace.gif peace.gif

I've only seen a blue leopard. Snow white with blue back and black spots floating on top is that also leopard?

Thx for sharing

Nice to see this fat chubby little beauty and the youtube clip, after a busy days work....very welcoming.

i love the back thickness of the girl (i am assuming here), and the head growth. From the 2nd pic looks like the eyes could be covered with wen? Once again nice find doc.

oh i know its hard to find calicos with smaller tails, but i'm getting use to the slightly longer ones....sometimes i feel a calico could out shine others in the tank, despite having a poor tail.

That leopard quite nice, have many in Hong Kong at the market. I saw one just blue snow, no black spots no red just white and deep blue along back. Quite novel and interesting, they ask high price.

Oh Donielle
blush.gif You just make my day.


Don't paint such a good man that you think I am to be
In real,I am far from perfect as far as I can see
But I try to impart what I know and share the beauty of my fishes
Unfortunately what you see here can often be only your wishes................
