Baby snow leopards

Three baby snow-leopards born in Salzburg’s Hellbrunn zoo six weeks ago got their first brief taste of the outdoors this week.

The two female cubs and their brother frolicked around in their enclosure for half-an-hour before mum Mira decided they’d had enough and took them back inside.

Zookeeper Andreas Gfrerer said: “This is the first time they’ve ventured outside of the den. They seemed to enjoy, even if it was only for 30 minutes.”
