Wild snow leopards have been photographed for the first time in a Tibetan reserve, conservation officials said on Wednesday, offering hope that the endangered species can survive....

The leopards, which are rarer than giant pandas in China and listed as "endangered" by the International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN), were snapped 27 times between May and September by more than 40 cameras installed at the Mount Qomolangma National Nature Reserve in the Tibet autonomous region. Qomolangma is the Tibetan name for Mount Everest.
