The Joongang Ilbo always has neat features, and last week was one about tigers in Korean zoos and the challenge of finding mates for them. Who knew there were three Siberian tigers in Gwangju?
On the topic of wild cats, I've been having students read from a book about them for the school's afterschool English class. That reminded me of a post on Dave's from last summer about a teacher in Yeosu who came across a dead 삵 in the middle of the road. He explains that the Salg (삵) is a wild cat found in Korea, a fun fact I hadn't heard before or since. The Latin name is Prionailurus bengalensis euptailurus, and a search tells me they're better known as "Leopard cats."
