    Is there any recent news from Tallinn regarding the move of Baruto the Amur Leopard?

    On the Amur leopard front, Darla is expecting her fourth litter any time soon, after breeding in 2008, 2010, 2011 and this year too;

    2008 2.1
    2010 1.1
    2011 1.0.1
    2012 ?

    Darla gave birth to 3 cubs in the early hours of Friday 13th April, all about 2 hours or so apart from each birth. All seems to be going very well from what I've seen.

    I was lucky enough to see her give birth to the first 2 of the cubs on the webcam.

    Yes, first cub was born at 00:42am, second cub 02:42am and the last cub about 05:10am something like that.

    I as well as you and a few other Zoochatters saw the first two cubs being born.

    Darla's 3 cubs appear to be all females, and have all been examined and all are to be doing very well.
