 Social Networks For Snow Leopards

Sayano-Shushensky Nature Reserve has got a new video of snow leopard.  The camera trap, set up in video mode, captured a two-year female snow leopard in all her charm.

      Born in 2011, she was registered in late August of the same year. This is a very active individual, most often fixed by automatic photographic recorders on the territory of reserve. On the footage it is seen as a female rubs against a large rock, leaving her "traces".

      There is a reason why snow leopard chose this side of the rock. This is a marking point for animals, whose route passes through this part of the reserve. The rock is a sort of social network for the reserve inhabitants. When animal comes here it leaves information about itself and reads from the stone data of other individuals that have visited here before: their species, gender, age, health, marital status and even the time and frequency of visits at this point. Due to such kind of communication points (which is proven by photographic recorders) conflicts never occur here.
