[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This was shot in 'south khoirabari' bit of Jaldapara Wildlife Sactuary

Although, the frame deceptively depicts a leopard in its natural habitat, in reality it is inside a 21 feet (18+3) wire-fenced enclosure. Another caged caravan moves inside this space loaded with tourist & hence the tracks. Like this, there are other compounds for tiger also. In total this facility is known as 'south khoirabari' animal rescue centre. By & large it is an establishment for captive breeding of wild carnivores.

To save us the money and the time of ride we directly approached towards one of the fencing and managed to poke the lens barrel to sneak out some pics. This fellow is known as 'chima' to his patrons.

Hallo Subhayan
It is a fact that a leopard is a stunning animal no matter in what position you see or capture it, and yours is no exception. This one in your image of today looks very healthy looking at its lovely spotted fur, pink tongue and the way it is swinging its tail. Thanks for sharing and reminding me once again of this cat's beauty. Best regards.
