Young snow leopards arrive at Brookfield Zoo

Brookfield Zoo is debuting its new snow leopards. In mid-October, the female and male juveniles arrived at Brookfield Zoo from different zoos accredited by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums. Sarani, a 1-year-old female, is from Tautphaus Park Zoo in Idaho Falls, Idaho. Her new mate, Sabu, is a 1 1/2-year-old from Cape May County Park Zoo in New Jersey. Following a 30-day routine quarantine at the zoo's Animal Hospital, the medium-size cats were introduced to their new home at Brookfield Zoo.
