    I have just found out that the 2nd leopard you saw last year is Jessei's 7 year old daughter Amara. Her mother went to Marwell Zoo some years ago and where she died last year.

    That means the enclosure will be re-furbed to house another species of Leopard now.

    A real treat (no offence on Amur or Persian leopards)!

    It seems clouded leopards are on the march in EAZA zoos?
    Which is next to CWP .....
