Meet Nidara, Dudley Zoo's nine-week-old female snow leopard. Her name means 'fearless' in Hindi and she's the first snow leopard cub to be born at the zoo in 12 years.

Jill Hitchman head of communications said:

"Staff are delighted with Nidara who is making excellent progress. She has become quite a star and has already made headlines around the world – everyone just loves her."

Nidara was nicknamed Cub X when she was bornby keepers who had to wait until yesterday's inoculations were administered to discover if they had a boy or girl.
