  Abstract The snow leopard Panthera uncia, classified as Vulnerable by the IUCN, is distributed

across the mountainous areas of 12 countries in South and Central Asia. The common

leopard Panthera pardus, also classified as Vulnerable by the IUCN, has the widest

geographic distribution among all wild cats and inhabits many countries of Africa

and Asia. The common leopard is much bigger than the snow leopard. Sightings of

both species in the same location have recently been reported from the Autonomous

Region of Tibet and Sichuan, China. We conducted a camera trap survey to verify the

presence of these large carnivores using camera traps in Niandu and Yunta villages

of Qinghai province, China. In both areas camera trap stations captured both species,

identifying seven adult snow leopard and four adult common leopard individuals.

Our study provides the first photographic evidence of common leopard presence in

Qinghai province and confirms the co-existence of snow leopards and common leopards

in the Sanjiangyuan National Nature Reserve. A more detailed study will be

conducted to investigate the distribution and interaction of the two species along

Tongtianhe and Zhaqu rivers, Qinghai province, in order to enhance efforts for their

long-term conservation.
