    they didn't "find" a new species, just reclassified a well known one as a separate one.

    Gorgeous. Just stunning... *dreamy sigh* I love cats. Thanks for posting this OP, otherwise I probably never would have heard about this new 'species.'

    They might as well add OS X 0.5 to their list while they're at it.

    Come on...this deserved a more sensationalistic headline:

    "Leopards future cloudy" or
    "Copies of latest leopard found in the wild" or
    "Leopard announcement: only 5,000 to 11,000 available"

    That is exactly what I was thinking- although I was hoping for the other one to be released first. :D
