|Chimeeguy, A Snow Leopard Baby|
|Let me outta here!|
These cats are native to the mountain ranges of Central Asia. They are also on the endangered list, being close to extinction.
|The name is Bond, James Bond... I mean Chim!|
|This is Chimeeguy's mom, Nema|
Nema, like most all cats, is a great mom.
|If this weird stuff wasn't in the way, I think I'd like to eat you. |
You appear to be made of meat and look yummy.
|Being a cat, Chim is just checking out the habitat|
Chim was enjoying showing off for the camera and all the people. Like most cats, and small children, he gets a kick out of all the attention. My good friend Meldee writes:
He climbs and slides down the logs in front to show he can do it. He then comes right up to the fence where all the people are ooohing and awwwwing. No fear there!
Then, it's back up onto the ledge to play with mom for a while... play with the vines hanging over the ledge, take a quick nap and pose cute for the cameras.Oh, the life of a little leopard!
|I am an ATTACK cat!|
|Hmmm.... what's this?|
|How do I get down from here?|
Would not want to see this coming at me... even though he's only 4 months old!
|Sleepy now... Time for a nap... Bye.|

If you live in California, you can also go visit the snow leopards at the San Diego Zoo.
Thanks, Meldee and Don, for sharing your great photos of these magnificent beasts. It was fun getting to meet Chim and his mom.
