"Dorje! Bad girl!"
—Dr. Elizabeth Gelman scolding Dorje for biting Dr. Ian Malcolm(src)

    Dorje was a baby snow leopard that lived in the San Francisco Zoo in the novel canon.


When Dr. Ian Malcolm was at the San Francisco Zoo to exam a skin fragment that Dr. Richard Levine had extracted from an unknown animal, the report on the skin was delayed due to the afternoon animal feeding inside the nursery of the zoo's research laboratory. Malcolm witnessed the feedings of a baby gorilla, a koala, and finally Dorje as he waited. While Dorje was being fed, Malcolm attempted to stroke the leopard's belly, but when he reached out his hand the female leopard bit him, though the bite failed to break through his skin.[1]
