Chattanooga Zoo Snow Leopards Cam Allows Fans 24/7 Glimpse Of Large Cats

Tuesday, January 08, 2013

Fans of the Chattanooga Zoo will once again be able to keep a close eye on Chattanooga Zoo’s growing snow leopard cubs thanks to a new “Snow Leopard Cam” that has been installed in the Himalayan Passage exhibit of the Zoo.   

The web cam is positioned within the Snow Leopard den and allows fans to get a 24/7 glimpse of the large cats outdoor play area.  Since the rare birth of two snow leopard cubs this past October, there has been an increased demand for a high resolution video camera with which to view the cubs’ daily activities and witness their rapid growth.   

“We are so glad that everyone can now enjoy the daily antics of our adorable snow leopard cubs, ‘Everest’ and ‘Maliha’ and their parents ‘Czar’ and ‘Kasimer’,” said Darde Long, executive director for the Chattanooga Zoo.  “The cubs grow so incredibly fast and watching them turn into large cats is a one-of-a-kind experience that we wanted to share with our supporters.”

Fans can view the Snow Leopard Cam by visiting www.chattzoo.org.

Walking Among Memories, The USS LST-325
