The last time I was at the Oregon Zoo was several years ago, but I remember seeing an Amur leopard for the first time there and my breath was taken. Not sure which leopard it was; perhaps one of the deceased leopards. Even so, Kia is just as lovely as the leopard I saw. Wonderful photograph of her, NaturePunk. :3 Hope I get to see this gal in real life very soon. ^_^

HAHAHA! SOOOO true. I've heard people call the leopards cheetahs too many times to count. What's really funny is people calling the ocelots baby tigers. :P

Thank you!
