Snow leopard cubs at 1 month old

Posted by: Rebecca Whitham, Communications

The two endangered snow leopard cubs are one month old today, and we took some new photos this morning to document their growth.

Check out the full photo album from this morning's session on Woodland Park Zoo's Facebook fan page. Become our Facebook fan to get automatic zoo updates in your Facebook news feeds.

The two cubs remain behind the scenes with their mother while they bond and grow, but stay tuned to the blog for more updates on the duo.

  1. They are so precious! Do they have names yet?

  2. Are Tom and/or Helen descended from the original WPZ pair, Nicholas and Alexandra? They would probably be great great grandchildren.

  3. No, they are not related to Nicholas and Alexandra. They are genetically distinct which is great so as to start a new lineage. Also, the cubs do not have names yet; we are hoping to do a naming contest. Stay tuned for more details!
