Snow Leopard Cubs Make Debut

Now is the time to venture out to Brookfield Zoo and see Malaya and Daania, 4-month-old snow leopard cubs who made their public debut recently in their outdoor habitat. The two sisters have been behind the scenes bonding with their 4-year-old mom, Sarani, since their birth on June 16, 2015. This litter is the second for the zoo’s adult snow leopard pair. Sarani and her 5-year-old mate, Sabu, arrived at Brookfield Zoo in October 2011. Sarani and Sabu’s last cub, Everest, was born at Brookfield Zoo in 2013 and now resides at Lincoln Children’s Zoo in Lincoln, Nebraska.

Fishing Cat Kitten in Fragile Rain Forest

When you visit the Fragile Rain Forest exhibit, you may hear the pitter-patter of little paws splashing in a small pool. That’s because there is a new addition: a male fishing cat kitten born on October 31, 2014. He has now grown old enough to be seen on exhibit with his 4-year-old mom, Anna.
