Huliyong, second brother of leopard cat, meet visitors in Formosan Animal Area

On September 26, the second brother of three leopard cats started his new life in the Formosan Animal Area. It was officially named “Hulinyong” after a naming competition on the Facebook fan page that saw most votes go to the kitten’s nickname.
A litter of three leopard cats was born in early March this year. The elder brother and little sister are preparing for pre-release training to augment the wild population.
The second brother, Hulinyong, was housed for stabilizing the ex-situ population and maintaining genetic diversity. Huilyong also became an ambassador to educate the public about the habits of Taiwan’s only surviving wild feline — the leopard cat, and the plight of leopard cats in the wild.
