I live in Leicestershire, Uk, very close to Twycross Zoo. The snow Leopard pair have had their 2nd litter in two years. They were born May 1st 2013 and there are 2 boys. I have visited a few times to see them and often get talking to a photographer who visits late afternoons. Whilst i got a few 'okay' pictures he got some fantastic ones. He has a Flikr account which has fantastic images of a lot of birds and animals.... Andy Silver

Some of his baby leopard images:

Oh how I love felines -- wild, domesticated, large or small! These are just gorgeous.

Awww wow those pictures are gorgeous, thank you so much for sharing them with us!!

It's so nice to hear that such an endangered species is breeding well too, albeit in captivity.

squeel.... I want one - look how cuddly they look and their little dark colour patches of fur below their noses look like tiny mustaches!
I'm so in love with them!

I love any feline as well! Big or small they are beautiful and demand attention! I can see how a silver Bengal is said to look like a snow leopard! Their markings on their bodies are very much snow leopard! Makes me wonder why a snow Bengal is a snow bengal :redface: I get it, because they are mostly white, but a silver looks more like a snow leopard than a snow Bengal does!
