Remember those two snow leopard cubs that were born at the Assiniboine Park Zoo last month?
You won’t soon forget them after looking at these pictures.
The Assiniboine Park Conservancy announced the neo-natal examinations of the two male cubs have been completed and both are healthy. The adorable cubs were born in the early hours of June 29 and were given a few weeks off-exhibit to bond with their mother and to receive proper veterinary care.
Zoo officials say it will be at least another month before the three-week-old cubs are ready for their public debut.
"Both cubs are doing exceptionally well and growing more and more each day," Gary Lunsford, acting director of zoological operations at the Assiniboine Park Zoo, said in a statement. "We expect that within the next few weeks they’ll start exploring on their own, at which point we’ll be able to announce a date for their public debut."
The proud parents, Batu and Henry James, are also doing well.
