|Baby amur leopard cubs made their public debut at the Minnesota Zoo yesterday.|
Native to eastern Asia, only 300 amur leopards live in captivity world wide, 90 of these in the United States. Fewer than 40 live in the wild. The leopards are considered critically endangered.
Because the leopards are so rare, the zoo didn't want to take any chances and that's why it's taken so long for the cubs to make their public debut.
