Kia’s Farewell Pose

I was so pleased to see Kia, our senior Amur Leopard, sitting quietly when I approached her viewing window. She’s usually pacing around keeping an eye open for her mate, Boris. Kia will be 21 years old in October making her the oldest Amur Leopard in the world. She joins 6 other animals at the Oregon Zoo as the oldest of their species in captivity.
