Oliver, a baby leopard was born in an animal park in the south of France. The result of an uncontrolled birth, his mum did not recognise him and didn’t take care of him. Therefore, Oliver needed to find a more suitable place which could provide him with the care he needed. 

His owner knew Florence Ollivert-Courtois, our vet, who suggested that the La Tanière Zoo Refuge welcome this little cub. From the moment he arrived, Oliver became a favourite of the team. 

After a few weeks at La Tanière, Oliver began to eat meat. His ration increased day after day and he’s settling in very well! Oliver, although still small, has shown how much character he has.
