Sri Lankan Leopards / La Palmyre Zoo

Threatened by poaching and habitat destruction, this rare subspecies of Leopard got a helping hand from the European Endangered Species Breeding Programme. Of the seventy-seven Sri Lankan Leopards in captivity, sixty-six live in Europe, including these two adorable cubs, born 6 March.

This is the first litter for Leïah, La Palmyre Zoo’s 4 year old Sri Lankan Leopard female. The two babies, now five weeks old, are in perfect health — via ZooBorns
