#felid

A male leopard reacts aggressively to the approach of a hyena in South Africa's Timbavati region. This leopard had not yet cached his prey up a tree out of the hyena's reach, though his ferocity was enough to keep his prize.

When the male started searching for the female before mating, he started dragging his right leg consistently and continued after the mating scene. Only time we’ve ever seen the drag occur, not even earlier that day, and only the right leg

Meet our endangered species of the week: The Iberian Lynx (Lynx pardinus)
Fun Facts:
• The Iberian Lynx is the most endangered feline species in the world. • These cats grow to about 1 metre in length!
• There are only 404 adults left according to the last consensus.
• These beautiful felids are only found in southwestern Spain.
• There are only 2 isolated breeding populations of Iberian Lynx.

Threats:
• Decreasing food base, specifically wild rabbit population in Spain.
• Road casualties
• Habitat loss and degradation- The Iberian Lynx has suffered an 80% decrease in is habitat range!

What is being done?
Efforts are being made to boost the wild rabbit population so lack of prey will no longer be an issue. Traffic calming and measures for safe highway crossing for animals have been implemented. Areas with known lynx populations are regularly being monitored for illegal traps as well. There are also local outreach programs taking place to educate the public about the endangered status of these animals.

What can you do?
• Spread the word!
• Buy wine/ bottles that have natural corks! The trees in Spain that are used to make oak corks provide habitat for the Iberian lynx, so by supporting this industry, you are helping the Iberian Lynx population!

A solitary lioness near #Msembe this afternoon. Lean and lactating and out in the harsh afternoon sun. She was searching for something, either her cubs or a much-needed meal....

Lions don’t get much more majestic than this beauty!
This is Moto, meaning ‘fire’ in Swahili, and he certainly lives up to his name. He is one of four white lions that lives at Paradise Wildlife Park.

Though it is often thought, the white lion is not an albino but has a rare pigmentation as a result of a recessive gene, the condition is called leucism. Genetically, the white lion is the same subspecies as the tawny Southern African lion.
Though populations in captivity are often an occurrence of inbreeding, they do occur naturally, and The Global White Lion Protection Trust (WLT) initiated a world-first re-introduction programme which has seen the successful establishment of three prides of white lions of high genetic integrity integrated with tawny lions.
Those beautiful cats are endemic only to the Greater Timbavati, a region of South Africa.

The Amur leopard (Panthers pardus orientalis) is a subspecies of leopard native to regions of Russia and China. This beautiful cat has adapted to life in the temperate forests and can leap more the 19 feet horizontally and up to 10 feet vertically!
Sadly this beautiful feline is listed as ‘Critically Endangered’ on the IUCN Red List due to poaching and encroaching civilisation. As of 2015 it is thought that fewer than 60 individuals live in the wild.
This gorgeous leopard was snapped at Colchester Zoo! 🐆

LEOPARD LOVE:  Leopards mating is usually a raucous affair and this pair was no different.  It was exciting and rare to observe them engaged in this behaviour out in the open on a boulder in Tanzania's northern Serengeti.

So I've been working on a 2018, updated ref of Nibi, they're their own sort of species, I kinda just slapped characteristics onto a character a year or so ago and got her and she's been my Sona since. Although since I made her I noticed how many other people also had four ears. 🤔 either way have this lineart so far, not all of it is shown obviously but it was the biggest Instagram would show. #digitalart #furryreference #furryref #furry #furrywip #furryartist #furryart #originalcharacter #oc #original #artist #personalwork #furrycat #furryfeline #felid #feline #sfw #Nibiru #SublimeAesthetic #SublimeAestheticEngel #Engel
