As you may recall, I’ve been frustrated by the “Night Hunters” exhibit at the Cincinnati Zoo. It’s become nearly impossible to take good photos there.
As an early Christmas present, I got a bit of technology to help. I’m going to have to learn how to tune it, but I may have cracked it!
Unfortunately, the fishing cats choose to stay out of sight. Some of my other favorites were out. One I’ve been quite taken with lately is the clouded leopard, with his great camouflage.
The clouded leopard has to things that I find cool. First, it has, in my opinion, the coolest scientific name of any of the cats: Neofelis nebulosa. The other thing has to do with its teeth. Relative to their body size, clouded leopards have the largest canines of any of the cats. Their fangs are the same size as those of a tiger.
The lionesses were acting like bookends.
Across from their enclose, a crew was working on the lights display. The one on the left watched them very intently. Obviously, feline supervision is true for cats of any size.
