Zoo's Leopard Gives Birth to Cubs ({{commentsTotal}})


Darla, Tallinn Zoo's Amur leopard, is resting comfortably with offspring after giving birth to two male cubs last night. 

"The cubs are with mother and everything is fine," said zoo spokeswoman Inari Leiman on ilmajaam.ee. 

The trio is not receiving visitors but a webcam is up and streaming live.

"Darla is a very experienced dam, she will manage," Leiman said. It's the fifth litter for Darla, who is just shy of 10 years of age.

Born in Berlin Zoo in 2004, she came to Tallinn the next year.
