Interesting…so glad to learn new things about these magnificent felines!
A few years ago we were in Seattle and saw the wonderful snow leopards at their home in the zoo. It was afternoon so of course, being cats, they were napping. They had recently had 2 cubs and the male had an optical disease which required removal of his right eye. And just about a year ago we were in Big Bear,CA and saw that the son there had adopted the two cubs fromm Seattle. So we got to see two generations of a snow leopard family.So cook.
There were actually three cubs in that litter. The two sisters (Asha and Shanti), both suffering from the same issue, were sent to Big Bear Zoo. There is a nice write up on them on the Big Bear website. I am a member of and frequent visitor to Woodland Park Zoo Seattle.
Thanks so much for directing us to the Big Bear Zoo article. I hadn’t realized this litter happened a decade ago! I hope the two surviving leopards are still with us. I wish they had been able to breed in case the eye disease was not genetic. Now I’ll check out the BB Zoo website to find out if the leopards are still there.
I got only 7 correct so I guess I need to study up!
