Hi 'mites;

I came across this beautiful rare sighting of a strawberry-colour leopard that was spotted in a reserve and thought I should share the picture with you :gflower: .

Isn't this just a beauty? :D

The president of the cat conservation group, Luke Hunter, told National Geographic that the leopard might have erythrism, a little-understood genetic condition that's thought to cause either an overproduction of red pigments or an underproduction of dark pigments.

The article can be found here.
