Our critically endangered, twin Amur leopard cubs, born on the 9th September, are now exploring their outside enclosure and visitors may be lucky to catch a glimpse of them.
See them outside for the first time in the clip below:
At 9 days old the leopard cubs opened their eyes and since that time they have been exploring their private cubbing den and off show area as their strength, coordination and confidence grew.
At just a little shy of 6 weeks of age they took the next step and emerged into the outside enclosure; they have been exploring all the areas they can although mum Esra is still a little unsure about giving them free rein and is returning them back to their private cubbing den when she feels the time is right therefore viewing of these delightful cubs is not guaranteed.
We are politely asking that visitors remain as quiet as possible whilst viewing the leopards and not to use any flash photography.
The cub’s genders will not be known until their vaccinations are given at 12 weeks of age. We will be sharing regular updates on the cub’s progress in the meantime.
