      Appears to be one of the best snow leopard exhibits in the United States. @Echobeast is this new?

      @Arizona Docent This is from phase 2 of Asian Highlands. Opened up in Spring of this year.

      One could make the case that for African Lions and Snow Leopards, Omaha has some of the best big cat exhibits in the nation. Add in the Amur Tiger and Cheetah exhibits, both looking fantastic, and suddenly the zoo has opened 4 brand-new big cat habitats in the past 3 years. Director Dennis Pate continues to revitalize a zoo that seems to gain steadily on San Diego every what point does Omaha become recognized by zoo nerds as America's #1? The Scott Aquarium is getting revamped yet again, next year will see the debut of a $22 million California Sea Lion habitat, and then perhaps another couple of major projects could see Omaha as the 'top dog' in the nation.

      @snowleopard I think once the new sea lion exhibit is done there won’t be a single poor exhibit in the park. And they still want to bring polar bears back at some point. It’s going to be really hard to argue that Henry Doorly isn’t the top zoo in the nation in a year or two.

      Yes - four new big cat exhibits - but what about small cats? That is what it takes to get a certain ZooChatter to book a flight from Tucson to Omaha. ;)
