Meet Karesh!

Karesh is 17 years old. He was born on April 16, 1998 in Winnipeg.

Snow leopards are well-adapted to their high mountain habitats. Their fur is thick for warmth (can grow to be 13 cm long on their bellies) and spotted for camouflage. The snow leopard’s tail is as long as its body for balancing on steep mountainsides and can act as a scarf on those really cold nights.

Every Monday at 1 p.m. Karesh has a carnivore feeding.
