In our Mother’s Day feature we spoke with Tiffani Michele who is currently traveling the world with her kids and her hoops. Here we get to see her daughter Brooke Bearup hooping atop Machu Pichu, the 15th-centry Inca site located in the Cusco Region of Peru in South America. Hooping there is a rare thing to get to see not only because Machu Pichu is 2,430 metres (7,970 ft) high, filming there is kind of a problem. In fact, Brooke got kicked out for making this video. She lives in Orange County, California, USA, and the soundtrack is “No Longer There” by Cat Empire (on iTunes).
Previously thought to be a standard clouded leopard, scientists in 2007 realized that this was a completely different species, both in genetic match up and physical appearance.
The main differences are visible in coat color and pattern. Standard Clouded leopards tend to be a lighter, tawnier brown and have pinker noses. The cloud markings on the Sunda Clouded Leopard are relatively smaller but have many more spots and markings within these cloud shapes.
There are about 40 genetic differences in the DNA of a Clouded Leopard and a Sunda Clouded Leopard. They are considered vulnerable due to deforestation, with about 5000-11000 in Borneo.
