Snow Leopard Cubs

There's nothing better than watching newborn animals curiously explore the world around them

There’s nothing better than watching newborn animals curiously explore the world around them. They dig, pounce, sniff, and fall, and then look up at you with those wide eyes too big for their heads. It’s magic. So you can only imagine what it was like when we made friends with a few baby snow leopards in Germany—they were like kittens on special steroids that multiply cuddleability by a factor of ten. The pudgy fur balls love nothing more than to go on mini-adventures in their playground at Magdeburg Zoo. And not even their mother was able to curb their curious mischievousness. We saw them nudge around a soccer ball, dip their huge, snowshoe-like paws into bowls of water, and tinkle on the floor (even that was cute). To top it off, they are the official symbol of the Girl Scout Association of Kyrgyzstan. We bet they really like their cookies!

Watch a brand-new episode of The Cute Show! featuring these snuggly, fuzzy cubs later this month.
