Do You Know What a Snow Leopard Sounds Like?

We finally made our first winter visit to the Cleveland Zoo this year on President's Day.  We spent most of the day walking our dog but visited the Northern Trek late afternoon.  It was a fun hour because the tigers were quite lively and vocal.  I got some good closeups of all three of them.  The wolves were fun to watch too!  They ran around and one leaped to the little island in the beaver pond.  It was the first time I saw a wolf on it!  The biggest surprise though was when the snow leopard made noises!  It sounded like a cat--more like a meow than a growl.  I did manage to get a couple of the noises the snow leopard made on video.  I was surprised that only the sloth bear was out and not the grizzlies.

One of the biggest benefits of getting a zoo membership for the year is being able to go anytime we feel like it and spend as much or as little time as we want there.
