Update on Snow Leopard Family

snow leopardsWe would like to share an update on the snow leopard family. Kira and her 10-month-old cubs, Pandora and Naphisa, are currently off exhibit and will be for the time-being. After the snow leopard care team recently observed Naphisa limping, our veterinary staff examined her and performed X-rays revealing that she had fractured her right rear leg. She is in good health otherwise, and surgery is being planned in the very near future. Naphisa and Pandora are curious, active and energetic cubs, and we do not know how she sustained her injury. Staff is closely monitoring Naphisa and we will share updates on this page as she continues to recover. In the meantime, Himal, the cubs’ father, can be seen on exhibit in the Himalayan Highlands.
