Hiya! Many of you know that I am passionate about animals and conservation so I treated myself to a Leopard encounter at Howletts in Kent. It was so amazing to hand feed such a beautiful animal as the Snow Leopard, they were both so majestic and very nice natured. Also it was a bonus I got to feed the Northern Chinese Leopard too! They have a completely different nature and the female was particularly 'wild'. The keeper who was called Liam I think was really lovely and full of knowledge, which made the experience even better. If you fancy doing something like this then follow the link to their page but remember these are wild animals that should be treated with respect so follow the keepers rules at all times.
Howletts is part of the Aspinall Foundation, which is a charity that does great conservation work and part of this is they breed and release animals back into the wild!
