Tai Lung appearing as one of Kai's amulets

I found this on Tumblr just now. Lol, I guess we all know what this means. :P

This is of course an Easter egg though, and therefore has some questionability. Think the filmmakers are just kidding around with it? Think it's probably just some other leopard? Or is it legit and canon?

I personally think it's legit - it makes sense according to the world's logic and what we've seen/heard thus far in the franchise. Anyone else?
