Leopard triplets born at BioPark
A trio of healthy snow leopard cubs were born at the ABQ BioPark on June 6. The cubs are the only set of triplets recorded in the U.S. this year.
The snow leopards’ parents, 10-year-old Kachina and 8-year-old Azco have produced two previous litters.
A total of 14 surviving cubs have been born at seven U.S. zoos this year. The ABQ BioPark is a member of the Snow Leopard Species Survival Plan. The snow leopard has been classified as endangered since 1974.
The cubs are not ready for public view, but visitors to the exhibit can view them in their nesting box via a live video feed.
