Malay Peninsula Black Leopard spots spotted


Hugh Paxton’s Blog received this from dauntless wildlife conservationist, Tim Scott, via my esteemed wife (another dauntless wildlife conservationist!). A very new take on Bagheera! Some of the comments following the story are downright nerdy, some interesting, all worth a read if you’ve time. The photos I find really intriguing. I knew polar bear fur is actually black (or more correctly dark brown) but I had always assumed panthers were spotless. Read on!


It is fascinating.

I know Reuben Clements who is mentioned in the story. He is an amazingly passionate and intelligent man who is doing some great work in one of the corridor areas in the Central Forest Spine!
