Kiska

By Pete_g  
Been away from the site and photography for quite some while now. Thought I'd upload a shot from a day out at Marwell with the family today.

She is an Amur Leopard cub born on 18th November 2007. Pronounced 'Keys-ka', Kiska is a Russian girl's name meaning pure.

Gorgeous! I love the eye contact and you look to be so close!
(I know Marwell has been telling folks what Kiska means, but someone who could speak Russian came on just after the name was chosen, and he told us it means 'Pussy' or 'Kitten'! It's often used as an endearment to little girls!)
