The Buffalo Zoo's Snow Leopard Cubs Are Now on Exhibit!

Visitors can now view the Buffalo Zoo’s two male snow leopard cubs in their outdoor exhibit!

Named Ketu and Makalu after mountains in the Himalayas, the cubs were born on June 2, 2010 to mother, Annapurna, and father, Dwaine. The breeding was recommended as part of the Association of Zoos and Aquariums’ (AZA) Species Survival Plan (SSP), which is designed to help a species maintain a healthy and stable population.

First-time mom, Annapurna, was the last snow leopard to be born at the Buffalo Zoo. She continues to take good care of her little ones, who have remained with her in the nest box off exhibit since their birth. Keepers set up a Live Cam in the nest box so visitors could observe the cubs’ progress on the monitor inside Ecostation. Visitors can now view Annapurna and her cubs in their outdoor exhibit in Vanishing Animals (North) from approximately 10:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. daily.
