Last Wednesday I finally had the chance to see the little snow leopards in our local zoo and as I promised, here are some of the 200(!) photos I took.

And it was really hard to spot them: Their enclosure is really large and the rocks have almost the same color as their fur. So, in the end, I had look for their tiny little spots to find them.

Beautiful! Those are amazing photos! I remember seeing Snow Leopards in a NY zoo and there was no way I could get a photo. They tend to be very shy and reclusive. I have created an adult Snow Leopard but I have yet to capture a Snow Leopard cub. Would love to try!  bear_wub

P.S. My second Snow Leopard did have spots on his paws! This Snow Leopard's paws are too light in color bear_rolleyes

Karen, your snow leopard is amazing.

Fortunately, the snow leopards in our zoo are not shy at all. But I was very lucky to see them.
While watching the little ones, I was talking to an older lady and she told me she had come there for aseveral days and never seen the babies. Finally, she called the office of the zoo and asked if the babies were already allowed to go outside and leave their stable. Teh answer was, yes, the door is always open, but Mom decides whether they can go outside or not.  bear_grin
