Leo 61F is a young Far Eastern leopardess living in the southern part of Land of the Leopard National Park. She was first spotted by camera traps back in 2015.
Pictures obtained during photo monitoring suggest that the leopardess has not had any cubs yet. Researchers say that this will soon change, as there are many male leopards living in the same area of the national park.
In April 2018, Land of the Leopard held for its followers a contest to choose a name for Leo 61F. During the first stage of the contest, those following the park's social media pages could submit their suggestions. During the second stage, participants were to vote for one of the five most popular names — Taiga, Pyatnashka, Marusya, Vesna and Nadezhda. The name Taiga received the most votes.
In 2017, Kedrovaya Pad trail cameras captured sensational photos of this female during her mating rituals with the master of the nature reserve, the male leopard Typhoon.
