Such happy boys, these triplets :heart: Aysen is doing a great job in raising her cubs; they're growing like crazy and find time and energy to play even when it's quite hot. This boy's mouth has opened - not just because of the heat - but also because he's already near salivating at the idea of untying the knot of the rope holding the swinging tire :P

Species: Sri Lankan Leopard (Sri Lankaanse panter)

Latin name: Panthera Pardus Kotiya

Originates from Sri Lanka.

Current status: Endangered

 Did you know:  

…The Sri Lankan Leopard was only first described in 1956, by the Sri Lankan zoologist Deraniyagala.

…Its Latin addition “kotiya” is a Sinhala name, but has been often wrongly translated as “Tiger” due to incorrect information, mistaking Leopards for “diviya”, the Sinhala term for small wild cats; since then, “kotiya” has been used for Tigers, and “diviya” for Leopards.

Thank you, that means a lot!
I love that about local zoos too - you really  see them grow, and sometimes their personalities are able to shine through as well :)
