Just yesterday I wrote about the successful snow leopard breeding program at Darjeeling Zoo in north India. Well, news today is they have another cub! She was born 42 days ago and appears in good health.
Mr Alonkar Jha, Director of the Zoo said “this is a female cub and that is very important for our future breeding. Second thing is that we have learned by our experience that if a cub is born at this time, its health will be all right. Rearing of cubs is difficult during rainy season. So, now we hope it will grow well.”
