2 snow leopard cubs go on display at Chattanooga Zoo


CHATTANOOGA (AP) - Two snow leopard cubs have gone on display at the Chattanooga Zoo.

Zoo officials told the Chattanooga Times Free Press that the cubs are a rarity because the animal is endangered and only 9 of 12 born in captivity this year survived.

The cubs at the Chattanooga Zoo, named Everest and Maliha, were born on Oct. 2. They went on display last weekend.

The cubs are young, and so zoo officials expect them to spend a lot of time napping, but say they should come out and show themselves without any issues.
