Central African Republic ~ Leopard with cub ~

... Fantastic new African country to add to my collection... situated deep in the heart of the African continent... it is one of the countries that offers the most diversity in wildlife and the wide expanse of natural resources... unfortunately after years of civil unrest CAR is a very poor country☹... most of the people are farmers, growing what they need to survive... the leopard populations are threatened  by losing critical habitat to deforestation and conversion for agriculture..... they are hunted illegally, and their body parts are smuggled in the wildlife trade for medicinal practises and decoration....Thanks a lot Matt!! ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

The Central African Republic (CAR)is a landlocked nation bordered by Cameroon, Chad, the Sudan, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, and the Republic of Congo. The  capital city, Bangui is located in the southwestern part of the country.

The area that is now the Central African Republic has been settled for at least 8.000 years.

The country is mostly grassy savanna's, but also contains dense rainforests. More forest elephants and lowland gorillas live here than almost any other place in Africa.

 CAR gained its independence from France in 1960. Since then, the government has been in chaos.
