INFO ABOUT THE ANIMAL:

Name: snow leopard (Uncia uncia or Panthera uncia)
Location: Hight mountains of Central Asia (Hindukush, Himalaya...)
Size: 1.3 m long body, 1,3 m long tail weight: 54 kg
Diet: Siberian ibex, argali, wild goats and wild sheep, deer, boars, langur monkeys, marmots, similar small mammals and birds
Conservation status: Endangered (there are 4000 – 6600 snow leopards)
Interesting facts: snow leopards are considered to be big cats, althought they are quite small than other big cats | snow leopards are not able to roar | other name for snow leopard is ,,irbis“ | snow leopards use their long and very fluffy tail as a scarf to hide their neck and head in cold weather. Fluffy tail is also good for balance | they have small ears to eliminate loss of body heat | snow leopards have blue eyes.

It is so amazing how, when looking at our pet cats, one can actually see leopards, tigers, lions, cheetahs, ect...in their expressions.

Its the weirdest thing, recently I took pictures of a new snow leopard at Dudley Zoological Gardens (west midlands UK) who had arrived the previous evening - from the Czech republic, called "Nanga"...

Then I saw this picture....and noticed the name... :faint:

woxys Featured By Owner Nov 4, 2010
yes, it is her :( you shocked me, I did not know they moved her :( so after recieving your comment, I just went to check ZOO website and they really say, that she was moved to Dudley :( :(

Please, can you do me a favour? :oops: I informed my best friend *Allerlei, that Nanga was moved and Allerlei is very sad now, because she loved this amazing young snow leopards a lot :( so please, if you post any photo of Nanga, can you, please, dedicate it (or at least show it) to *Allerlei :oops: please, would this be possible? :oops:

Oh, I will miss Nanga, she is so wonderful leopard :(
