The staff at the park soon revealed that the snow leopard’s stunned reaction didn’t take too long.
She went towards the camera and sniffed it for a bit before shifting her attention to taking another nap.
The footage was well-received by many Facebook users since it had been viewed more than 150,000 times since it was uploaded.
Jessie is currently four years old and is one of the two snow leopards at the Paradise Wildlife Park. The other one is named Panja.
The staff at the park expressed that they are hoping the pair will breed in the future.
According to the park’s official website, snow leopards adapt to high altitudes and can be found in the remote mountains of central Asia.
They can be easily determined through their tails since they have longer ones compared to other leopard species.
The longer tails help them in keeping their balance, and they also keep them warm during colder seasons. Snow leopards use their tails to cover their noses and mouths.
Apart from their dense coat, snow leopards also have very large paws that experts say act as “snowshoes.”
As of now, Jessie must be the most popular of her kind since becoming a viral hit.
She was taken to the Paradise Wildlife Park on November 12, 2015.
It took a couple of months to plan her transport, but it was successfully done. Jessie’s transport was part of the European Endangered Species Program, as revealed by the park’s website.
