Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 30, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta _SatuiJoy, S.pterMwr SO, 197S THf irlHBSIDOl HWAUJ 28 An ounce? Andy sends a complete 20- volume set of the Merit Stud- dents Encyclopedia to John Holcbmb, age 10, oE Santa Maria, California, for his question: Is there really an animal called an ounce? Oh yes there is such an ani- mal, though his name has noth- ing to do with how much he weighs. He is a large member of the cat tribe. But the rare and beautiful creature is sel- dom seen, even in zoos. Some people call him the onz, so as not to confuse him with the ounce which is one sixteenth of a pound. Others call him the snow leopard and others cal him the irbis. But hardly any body ever gets a chance to cal him anything to his face. Your horoscope The beauteous ounce likes t keep to himself. He lives hig up on the snowy Himalaya mountains, where even daring climbers seldom go. Those Today in history who call him the snow leopard are somewhat mistaken. True IB is about the same size as a eopard. He has a long leop- ard-type tail and his fur is spec ded with leopard-type spots 3ut experts who know tell us hat he is rot really a true leop- ard. However, there is no mis ake about the fact that th ounce is a big cat. Lynxes, persian house cats and several smallish wild cats have long fluffy fur. But the lions, tigers and other big cats wear short, smooth fur though the male lion has a long- ish, shaggy mane. The ounce is different. He is the one big cat with long, silky fur like the coat of a persian kitten. Its background color is creamy cc pale silvery grey. His large leopard type spots are black and rather blurred. They cover his whole body, his legs ant paws and even his long, furrj tail. His eyes are big and bright, blue or smokey grey. Truly the ounce is a beauty But because he lives in such a lonely part of the world, hardl: anybody gets a chance to ad mire him. scientists have not been able to learn much about his home life, though they tell us that he feeds on rabbits and hares, on wild sheep and mountain goats.
