A Hungary zoo has welcomed a pair of Snow Leopards into their new lairs with the hope of setting up a new breeding programme for the endangered species.
Waldi, the male, and Hara, the female, have recently arrived at the Kittenberger Zoological Garden of Veszpr?m.
Waldi was brought in from Krakow, Poland, and Hara from Broxbourne in Hertforshire in the UK as part of the European Association of Zoos and Aquariums' (EAZA) endangered species programme, according to broadcaster RTL KLUB.
A, sometimes skittish, Waldi was already settling in to his new home on Saturday, much to the delight of the Kittenberger's visitors.
While Hara, who is still too young to mate, was kept apart for now.
"We should not forget they are from two different zoos, probably the moment will come next week when we will 'seam' them and we hope it will be love at first sight," said Kittenberger's manager Laszlo Torok.
