Snow leopards are among the world’s most endangered big cats with only an estimated 3,500 to 7,500 remaining in the wild. Their range is limited to remote mountains of Central Asia and parts of China, Mongolia, Russia, India and Bhutan, zoo officials say.

The Bronx Zoo has had more snow leopard births – over 70 – than any other zoo in North America and was the first zoo in the United States to exhibit the big cats in 1903.
