Photograph titled 'Greeting from Snowy'. Caption on back reads: 'Snowy' sounds rather a friendly name but its owner, the snow leopard at the London Zoo is anything but friendly. The slightest gesture of friendliness is greeted with a snarl and when our photographer visited his cage 'Snowy' put on his best snarl and warned him not to come too close.
