Rare Snow Leopard Cubs Make Debut at Thrigby Hall Wildlife Gardens Norfolk
Two rare snow leopard cubs, the first to be born at Thrigby Hall Wildlife Garden near Great Yarmouth, have made their debut.
The cubs born to mother Nima and father Mohan in June have been given a clean bill of health and pronounced to be both male.
Mother Nima was born in Belgium in 2012 and father Mohan was born in Zurich in 2013. The two snow leopards came to Thrigby Hall as part of an international breeding programme, co-ordinated by the studbook keeper, Leif Blomquist of Helsinki Zoo.
Ken Sims and Scott Bird Directors at Thrigby Hall Wildlife Gardens said: “We are privileged to host these beautiful cats and to make a contribution to the conservation work of progressive zoos.”
The boys have been named Jamal and Jamir by members of the public.
Thrigby Hall Wildlife Gardens is at Filby near Great Yarmouth, t. 01493 369477.
The Wildlife Gardens open every day at 10am.
