Purr-fect presents for big cats!

Snow leopard, Margaash, and Lynx triplets, Dick, Dom and Daphne went wild for special surprises served up for their birthdays.


Handsome Margaash, who turns five today, received meat-filled enrichment presents from DZG Team Leader Jay Haywood, pictured right.

He said: “Margaash is one of the Keepers’ favourites due to his laid-back character.  

“He is a great dad and was more than happy to share his birthday treats with his one-year-old son Makalu and girlfriend Nanga.

“I’m sure the birthday boy will be getting lots of visitors today.”


And Carpathian lynx triplets, Dick, Dom and Daphne will also be celebrating tomorrow, as it’s their first birthday.

Keepers have organised a special birthday game of hide and seek when the triplets will have to search for tasty chick treats.


Thanks to Karen Edwards for supplying the photo of the birthday trio!

Don’t forget to say Happy Birthday to Margaash or the triplets if you’re on site today or tomorrow!
