Leika, the snow leopard: Meet the Calgary Zoo’s newest arrival


Leika has arrived at the Calgary Zoo, and it seems she’s a purr-fect fit.

The one-year-old snow leopard made her public debut at the zoo Friday, delighting crowds of mostly parents and young children, who stared with wonder at the majestic creature.

While Leika spent the morning napping under a rocky overhang, clutching her fluffy white tail, her roommate, 17-year-old male snow leopard Karesh, wandered around their enclosure at the Eurasian Gateway to stretch his muscles.
