Our baby leopards are already 3 weeks old and have begun to open their eyes about a week ago. We’ve noticed that the little ones are more and more solid on their feet when they move about.
Between 6 and 8 weeks of age, they’ll get their first vaccine and our veterinarians will take advantage of this time to carry out a full physical examination besides confirming their sex.
The babies, along with their mom, might be visible in one of our habitats by this summer. Follow us on our social networks (Facebook & Instagram) to view their first steps outside in a couple of months from now!
“These births constitute a major success for ex situ conservation efforts of the species and are considered almost miraculous!” Karl Fournier, director of animal care at the Zoo de Granby.
