Thursday February 23, 2012 - Snow Dancing Mates :)

Male and Female Snow Leopards Rigel and Niya, are getting to know each other, AND loving it! LITERALLY!  Rigel has been at the Zoo since May 2008, but Niya has only been here about two months and they have only been spending time together for eight days, when this footage was taken.  They are reccomended for breeding, so with all the mating attempts Sir Rigel has been making, we just may have some snow babies soon!




you can view two video clips of the mating game here
