Snow-leopard cubs at the Central Park Zoo
The Central Park Zoo is showing off two very cute new additions: A pair of snow-leopard cubs, who were born over the summer, made their official debut yesterday as part of the institution's Allison Maher Stern Snow Leopard Exhibit. They haven't been named as of yet, and are the first babies to mom Zoe and dad Askai.
Earlier this year, another snow-leopard cub debuted at the Bronx Zoo, but this is the first time one of the critters was born in Central Park. The pair will only be outside at intervals for now—they still need to get used to the space—but you should be able to catch a glimpse of them in their new habitat. You can also watch the video below for a peek at the cubs as they explore their surroundings, scamper and be generally super adorable.
