Beautiful Sri Lankan Leopard Cubs in Maubeuge Zoo Could Melt Your Heart


Northern France –Two rare Sri Lankan Leopard cubs were born at Maubeuge zoo! These cubs were exactly born last month, July 1 and weighed around 2 Kg (4.41lb), AFP news agency reported.


Sri Lankan Leopard is one of the largest, rarest and most beautiful cats in the whole world. It is also part of the widely endangered wild species. Only 700 rare Leopards are living around the world and they are classified by the International Union for Conversation of Nature (IUCN), says Jimmy Ebel of Maubeuge Zoo.

After a month of observation, "These leopards are under great threat due to deforestation and poaching," Ebel says. Maubeuge Zoo houses about 300 animals including Asian elephants. By the way, people in France be aware that these cute little cubs can attract you down and hunt you down at the same time. =)


Leopard is the largest wild cat you can see and because they are spread geographically, they also differ from characteristics, like the Indian Leopard.

Sri Lankan Leopard (Panthera pardus kotiya) are classified as endangered by IUCN. Their population is believed to be declining due to numerous threats including poaching for trade and human-Leopard conflicts. While, Indian leopard (Panthera pardus fusca) are classified as Near Threatened by IUCN , and sad to say the population of Indian Leopard is decreasing due to heavy poaching of illegal trade of skins and body parts in Asia.

I know these species are dangerous but they are also created by God. If I could only take them home, I will definitely adopt one and take care of her.

If you’re really a fan of Leopard clothes, then it's the right time to stop supporting such product. You should be aware about the numbers of Leopard being killed just to stitch those majestic clothes in the market. Like us, they also have families of their own. Please help in preserving their community. These wonderful creatures should not be butchered. I hope that humans will not be the cause of their extinction.
