This was what I was working on all semester! I’m pretty happy with how it turned out and I hope that maybe it can help some other artists.

I’m by no means an expert, just a student wanting to share my work with others. :)

This Strawberry Leopard was photographed in 2012 at the Madikwe Game Reserve in South Africa and is the first Strawberry Leopard to be photographed. The president of  Panthera - a U.S. based wild cat conservation organization - assumes that this leopard has erythrism. Erythrism is a genetic condition like albinism but affects the red pigments in an animal’s fur. This condition is common in raccoons and coyotes but this is the first time it has been proven to appear in a leopard. Because its fur color still offers it some camouflage, it is still quite successful in the wild.
