The Snow Leopard Conservancy had placed camera traps in India’s Hemis National Park for the PBS film Silent Roar. One of the traps must have been well-placed, because a snow leopard walked right up to it.
This video on Earth Touch’s website shows the curious felid sniffing and pawing the camera. Then, towards the end, you can see a second snow leopard in the background. Once the first cat is satisfied with its investigation, the two walk off together.
Snow leopards are such remarkable animals, and it is a privilege to be able to view this footage
