    Interesting short interview piece on research on Malay peninsula with black leopards. For those who do not know, the leopards of this peninsula are almost always black. (Until recently it was thought all of them were black until a camera trap photo showed a normal spotted leopard). Also of interest is how they converted the cameras to infrared to show up the spot pattern so they could make an accurate count.
