here this female lion was extremely interested in the zebra below.... not sure if whipsnade have the close proximity of these two animals quite correct! there is only a small walkway between two spices who have one meaning only for the lions... food! although as you can see the zebras....


held no fear at all, probably not even noticing the predators over the way or us humans! we were all as close to them as this little child got... i have never seen them so close, but then they also look very dejected and sad... the trees here were not the only shelter from the heat so this isn't the only reason they could have been so close...


now i think this above was a snow leopard... not sure, its a new area for the new animals, and a bit hard to see...


the zebra again, i didn't zoom in, only put my camera through into their enclosure...

Beautiful shots, Marian. Yes, I think you're right --it does seem to be a snow leopard.
