Snow Leopard Cubs At New York’s Central Park Zoo

Two yet-to-be-named snow leopard cubs — a male and a female — were introduced at the Central Park Zoo in New York on Wednesday.

The zoo, so far, is dubbing them “Little Boy” and “Little Girl” before they are officially named.

They weigh 30 pounds each, but should bulk up to anywhere from 65 to 120 pounds.

The cubs are the first for 7-year-old mother Zoe and 6-year-old father Askai.

Snow leopards first arrived at the Central Park Zoo in 2009, and Askai was transferred from the Bronx Zoo in the spring.

The cubs’ viewing schedule at the zoo will vary as they adjust to their surroundings.
