Shyly Brave Leika – Snow Leopard(ess)

One year old Leika has rapidly overcome her jetlag and her shyness and is in the main viewing area at the Calgary Zoo.  She likes the warm protected cave in the front of the enclosure soaking up the sunlight which has likely baked the rocks too.

I think she is doing very well.  She was sound asleep and some children went by – she woke up, checked them out, and a few moments after this photo took a HUGE relaxed stretch and snuggled down for more snooze.

She is part of the species survival plan and is already getting along with the gentlemanly Karesh.

    That’s quite a snuggle pose. She’s gorgeous.

      It is obviously a cozy spot with warmth and protection that she likes – at least its her favorite for now. (I look forward to seeing her out more so I can enjoy just how gorgeous she is).

    What a beauty! I love snow leopards, especially their big thick tails.

      Yes I want to cuddle their tails… but they likely wouldn’t like me to 😉
