Armeyets (Leo 36M)

Armeyets is a male leopard who lives in the northern part of Land of the Leopard National Park. He is nine years old, or in his prime in feline years. This dashing name (armeyets means "army man") was given to the leopard by the Central Sport Club of the Army (CSKA) in 2015.

Armeyets is a mature and active member of his species whose images are frequently captured by camera traps. He was spotted for the first time in 2011, and was seen again in 2013 and 2014. Judging from the images, the leopard is in excellent shape. He is the true master of his habitat. When he appears in front of cameras, he leaves scrapes and marks. Armeyets's serious facial expression tells us that he will not tolerate intruders in his territory. Other animals, including tigers, seem to know that and stay away.

This leopard is also confident and manly in his relationships with the opposite sex. In 2013 and 2014, trail cameras spotted him with females.
