Critically Endangered Amur Leopards Born in St. Louis

The St. Louis Zoo has announced that two Amur leopards were born in April. The Amur leopard is one of the most endangered cat species in the world, with fewer than 100 cats remaining in the wild. The female cubs, named Anya and Irina, are the first litter for their mother, four-year-old Dot and her mate Samson. They are the first Amur leopard cubs born at the zoo since 2010.

Anya and Irina are healthy, and will be kept away from the public for several months. See more pictures of the cubs at ZooBorns. -via Fark ā€‹
