      Is this guy stiil there? I didn't know that there were very many leopards in Australia.

      I understand Crocodylus Park has a reasonable number of big and small cats of several species; however it seems to be just odds and ends, i.e. random gathering, one of this and two of that. Is this correct? Are they abandoned exotic pets or something taken from small collections that have closed?

      According to the website the park currently has these 11 cats: 3 lions, 3 tigers, 3 ocelots, a Persian leopard and a fishing cat. I remember the enclosures to be extremely small and terribly disappointing, and elsewhere on the site (history section) there is the statement that some of the cats came from various other Australian zoos.

      Their website has not been updated in a significant amount of time. Their cat collection now stands at:
      0.2 Ocelot
      1.0 Fishing Cat
      1.1 African lion
      1.1 Tiger (not sumatrans)

      What is their Cat population consist of now... are they down to only one leopard... did one of the Tigers from ZooDoo come back here after failing to breed there?

      Pretty sure the leopard was from Perth zoo

      They have no leopards now, the cat collection is the same as in LOU's 2010 post above, but without the fishing cat now.

      The only leopards left in the region appear to be a male African at Gorge and a female Persian at Melbourne.
