Leo 86F is a young female leopard about three years old. This spotted wild cat was first identified in 2015 and was the first leopard to be recorded at this older age. She lives in Kedrovaya Pad Nature Reserve near female leopard Bary, unnamed female leopard Leo 73F and male Far Eastern leopard Typhoon.
Videos of Leo 86F show a cat cautiously exploring her immediate surroundings and not put off by difficulties — in the winter she climbs over huge snowdrifts, sometimes falling awkwardly through the snow. This female leopard is also a great mountain climber preferring higher peaks for a good view.
The researchers think Leo 86F is actively searching for a new friend; many videos show her sniffing around the ground. She has been seen many times in areas Typhoon frequents.
