A female snow leopard cub arrived at Micke Grove Zoo on January 1, 2014

The Zoo’s strong commitment and their successful history with snow leopards were both major factors in the Felid TAG’s decision to select a lively female snow leopard cub for transfer to our zoo.

The Zoo has historically been very successful with this species, housing a total of 14 snow leopards from 1985 through 2012. Three litters (seven cubs total) have been born and raised at this zoo. Micke Grove Zoo has demonstrated their continued commitment to this species by developing a new master plan that includes an exciting new snow leopard exhibit as the principal focus of the upcoming “ASIAN ADVENTURE” development.
