BALTIMORE (AP) - A rare leopard is set to make her debut at The Maryland Zoo on Monday.

The zoo says 6-year-old Sofiya has been in a standard, 30-day quarantine after arriving to Maryland last month. Sofiya was born at St. Louis’ zoo and has lived in zoos in Indiana and Connecticut.

The Maryland Zoo has never housed an Amur leopard, considered the most critically endangered leopard subspecies. The zoo says it’s estimated that there are less than 40 living in the wild.
