Darjeeling Zoo to receive snow leopard

The Padma Naidu Himalayan Zoological Park in Darjeeling will soon receive a snow leopard from Dudley Zoological Gardens in London. The leopard, named Makalu, is expected to make arrival at the Kolkata airport in an Emeritus Flight. Makalu will then be transported to the zoo. Makalu, who gets his name from the world’s fifth highest peak on the south-east side of the Everest, was born at the Black Country zoo.
