    It looks like it might be nursing Krys. :)) In any case…so so cute. :))

  • Thanks Ginny! It was all very quick so I think maybe it was just a cuddle. The youngsters were very entertaining! ;o)

    Lovely shot Krys, was at CWP myself a few weeks ago, did not realise the Amur Leopards had been moved on.

  • Thanks Mark! I didn’t know that. We actually didn’t get much further than the Walled Garden on this visit! ;o)
