ABOUT THE PROGRAM
TRANSCRIPT

- [Photographer] Persian leopards are among the largest cats

in the world.

They once ranged all the way from Turkey to Afghanistan.

But habitat loss, poaching, and a decimated prey base,

has made the Persian leopard one of the rarest

big cats on earth.

Take your light out, and take it around

to the outside door, and we'll just sidelight the cat, okay?

I think it'll be a lot more effective.

You're gonna need more oomph from the Koli.

Need more juice.

Oh, the cat's starting to get annoyed,

so our shoot's almost over.

Knock it down to two.

Oh man, that's nice.

That is nice.

Nice, good, good.

What a good cat.

I couldn't have asked for a better shoot.

- [Woman] Now can he go outside?

- Yeah, he can go outside, just don't open this one,

that would be bad.

Okay, I'm ready.

Okay, good, good, ouch.

I got 5,000 and it looked fantastic, really good.

Is this floor all covered with leopard pee, I hope.

Ah, that feels better.

Oh, that's nice.

Okay, I get out of this one too, right?
