Big day for the little snow leopards at Zoo Zürich: They recently had their first visit from the vet. The program included the first health check. In addition, the two cubs, around six weeks old at the time of the check-up, received their chip and the first vaccination.
BROTHER AND SISTER
We also know since the first vet check that the two little ones are a male and a female. Officials will determine their names in a competition on zoo.ch at a later date. So check back soon.
WHAT HAPPENED UNTIL NOW
The two young snow leopards were born on May 6th and 7th, 2022. They are Saida and Shahrukh's first cubs.
