Wildlife Wednesday: Hello Kitty
Today's subject is the beautiful and endangered snow leopard. Native to the mountain ranges of central and South Asia, the snow leopard's numbers are estimated between 3500 and 7000 in the wild. (Their numbers are uncertain because they are, by design, hard to see in their native habitat and, therefore, difficult to count.) There are roughly 600 to 700 living in zoos around the world.
Now for the cheap ploy:
Check out this video of the two-month-old snow leopard cubs now available for viewing in the Cape May County Zoo in New Jersey.
