This story is significant because I first saw Copito (or Snowflake in English) when I was ten years old back in 1984. We made a family trip to Spain and visited the Barcelona Zoo where he is a main attraction. I remember thinking what a beautiful and amazing creature and also how human his facial expressions were. He has delighted so many children like me – it will be a great loss. Thanks for the memories Copito!!
