Back in February, we had a new arrival join us from The Big Cat Sanctuary… Meet Khumbu, a 2 year old male snow leopard. This month, after settling in to his new home, he has made his first public appearance at Twycross Zoo.
On 26 April, Khumbu will be celebrating his 3rd birthday… and his first birthday with us at Twycross Zoo. We’d love for you to celebrate with us
Khumbu joins Twycross Zoo as part of the international breeding programme, which helps zoos maintain a genetically healthy population in captivity and acts as a safety net for the species in the wild. Did you know? Snow leopards are solitary animals and only come together to breed, or when females are rearing young.
Ever wondered what to buy a big cat for their birthday? Check out our Amazon Wishlist. It's filled with items that will enrich the lives of our animals and keep their enclosures well-maintained. Thanks to your donations we are able to provide a programme of enrichment for our animals which helps to enhance their well-being.
