    these majestic mammals fascinate and amaze. Wondering how many are in uk.
    Seen 1:1 at Marwell. Well a fleeting glimpse.
    1:1 at Highland wp. Very good view within a natural environment. chan and Amisha.

    I saw one several years ago at The Big Cat Sanctuary (which at the time was called Wildlife Heritage Foundation). I am not sure if it is still there. Port Lympne used to have some as well, but I am not sure if they still do.
