This specie of Leopard which was last seen about 100 years ago was recently photographed by a biologist after it was walking Majestically in the wild.

He was quoted to have said that: “We intensified our camera placement in the area the reports were being made. Within a few months, we were rewarded with multiple observations on our cameras”.Wakanda Exists?
