Spotted




You don't have to be a Mac or a PC to appreciate the snow-leopard upgrades here in the Philadelphia area.

I suppose you do have to have a computer of some sort — or another way of glomming onto cyberspace — to watch 6ABC's video of the newborn cub 
at The Cape May County Park & Zoo in Cape May Court House, New Jersey. But if you're reading this post that's not really an issue. 

The cub in the above video was born in May to 8-year-old mama snow leopard Himani and 11-year-old papa Vijay, almost exactly a year after Himani gave birth to twin boys Sabu and Kaba. Just last month, The Philadelphia Zoo's 3-year-old snow leopard Maya gave birth to a pair of cubs by 5-year-old Amga, video and photos of whom are also online.

I've heard* that the white spots on the back of some big cat's ears are there as little markers for their babies to follow. I don't know if it's true but I refuse to believe otherwise.


*Or I may have decided this for myself some time ago and now treat it as gospel.
