I decided to make the most of my day off today with a trip to Marwell Zoo [marwell.org.uk] to see the Snow Leopard cubs who were born there this summer. When I first arrived they were nowhere to be seen but by the time I returned this afternoon two of the cubs were up and about and very happy to pose for my camera. They seemed very intrigued by all their visitors and proved to be particularly good at looking straight into my lens with complete concentration. I wonder what Lucy would make of her Himalayan cousins? They??re certainly a good deal bigger than her and, even at only six months old, these youngsters have paws about six time the size of Lucy??s!
