Evert the Snow Leopard at the San Diego Zoo

Filed under: San Diego Zoo — Tags: — washaw @ 6:06 am

Anna and Evert are our snow leopards at the San Diego Zoo.  Both were born in captivity, Anna from the Memphis Zoo and Evert from Lincoln Park Zoo near Chicago.   They first arrived in 2006 and seem to be getting along fine.  We all hope the romance heats up this winter so Anna can give us 3 or 4 cubs in the spring.

  1. I hope you get some babies! I always thought it would be fun to work at the zoo or Sea World.

  3. Slightly bigger cat than in yesterday’s post. It’s true that they very cute cubs. I’m sure you’ll post them when they arrive.

  4. Very intense gaze. Don’t know if she wants to play or prey.
