Three snow leopards have been spotted in the Yushu hills in central China.

The animals are endangered, which makes seeing three of them in one place a rare sighting.

The World Wildlife Fund says there's only around 6,000 of the species left in the wild.

Snow leopards being hunted for fur and a decline in their prey are key factors in why they're endangered.
