I dropped by the Melbourne Zoo yesterday and visited the new cubs, Tashi and Gobi who are now 9 months old. The are almost as big as mum Meo from a distance. They were play fighting over a huge piece of meat, stalking each other through the grass, peeping around tree trunks and then pounce! Meo was sitting close by watching them intently. I guess she was checking how well her training was going.

A group of students from Mill Park secondary college came by with a sheet of questions about snow leopards from a project they’re working on. Fantastic! We had a great time chatting about the cats and conservation – by the end they were hooked!
