For just the second time ever snow leopard cubs have been born at the Akron Zoo. One male and one female cub were born on April 14, 2014.
The three Snow Leopard cubs, born March 5 at the Akron Zoo, made their first public appearance on June 3, 2016. The cubs were also recently allowed to pick their own names! The two males are now named: Layan, (short for Himalayan Mountains), and Altai (named after the Altai Mountains). Snow Leopards are indigenous to both mountain ranges. The female cub is named Asha, which means “Hope” in Sanskrit. Learn more and see more on ZooBorns…
