Snow leopard cubs get exam & full physical

This is exciting – we can see an indepth examination of the snow leopard cubs (now 6 weeks old) at Woodland Zoo, Seattle USA. There’s a lot to do, weighing, measuring, checking, vaccinations etc. This is the most comprehensive video of a zoo examination I’ve ever seen. And the little guys are so calm and placid, just quietly staring at everyone with huge sad eyes :-) But they do get raw chicken for reward, their first ever hard food while mum Helen looks on. Congratulations to staff at the Zoo for doing such an indepth exam and videoing it.(Produced by Ryan Hawk.)

    Great video Sibylle! The cubs were so quiet, I cannot believe it! Helen, the Mum looked a bit peeved to me and would have been well aware that the cubs had been taken and touched by humans. Fascinating material. Is it as wet in Melbourne as it is in Adelaide? We are having a traditional winter here for once. Brenton.
