Snow Leopard -- "one of my favorite big cats. Great view here of the HUGE long and fat tail; much more so than other big cats. They use them for balance in the high rocks where they live and for covering their faces like a blanket when sleeping. Saw a rescued one up close once and the handler was able to literally drag the prone leopard by the tail across the floor like a mop and it didn't faze the cat at all!"
A Cheetah mom at Burgers’ Zoo in the Netherlands has her paws full with a litter of six frisky cubs. Born September 14, the cubs have spent the last few months behind the scenes in their den, just as they would in the wild. They recently explored outdoors for the first time.
