Snow Leopard Mother And Cub In Mongolian Den

The first known video of a snow leopard mother and cub in a natal den in Mongolia's Tost Mountains filmed from a safe distance by Orjan Johansson, Panthera’s Snow Leopard Field Scientist and Ph.D. student, using a camera fixed to an extended pole.

Because of the snow leopard’s secretive and elusive nature, coupled with the extreme and treacherous landscape which they inhabit, dens have been extremely difficult to locate. This is a tremendous discovery and provides invaluable insight into the life story of the snow leopard.
