New Leopard Cubs in Syracuse Are Too Cute For Words
What's better than new baby animals at the zoo? Nothing. Absolutely nothing.
The Rosamond Gifford Zoo family in Syracuse is now bigger by two heads and eight paws. The new amur leopard cubs--the most endangered species of large cat--are guaranteed to be the cutest things you see all week.
I mean, COME ON... Those faces! The zoo broke the news yesterday on their Facebook page with some pictures of their 6-week check-up and visit with Onondaga County Executive Ryan McMahon.
The zoo said the cubs were born on June 19 at the zoo to parents Tria and Rafferty. They're still too little to be on the exhibit quite yet, but the zoo said they'll keep everyone updated on when we can go see their cute faces. You can also hold onto your name suggestions because the zoo will have a naming vote up soon on their Facebook page.
Rosamond Gifford is working on building the growing leopard family a new habitat. You can donate to the fund for their new enclosure at rosamondgiffordzoo.org/donate.
