A male Persian leopard was flown from Portugal to his native Iran, Wednesday, in an attempt to get him to breed with his female counterparts at Tehran Zoo.
A welcome ceremony complete with cake awaited eager visitors who crammed around the leopard's cage to catch a glimpse of the six-year-old male. If breeding attempts are successful, it would be “the first time in all the history of Tehran Zoo... Еще and Iran,” according to Dr. Iman Memarian, chief Vet of Tehran Zoo.
The Persian leopard is listed as endangered on the International Union for Conservation of Nature.
