At A Glance

    ZOO ZONE: Asian Passage

    The leopard is the epitome of stealth. Its very name brings mental pictures of this great spotted cat crouched on a tree limb awaiting the approach of a deer, or of a sleek, spotted body slipping silently through the dry savanna grass with scarcely a ripple as it nears its chosen target. Amur leopards love climbing, exploring, and playing with new things, and have a keen appreciation for scents; keepers add spice oils like cinnamon, spearmint, and lavender to their hay and climbing structures. But, like most cats, they also sleep a lot. You'll find leopards in Africa Rocks and also in Asian Passage.
