Two new snow leopard cubs will soon be joining the Asian Highlands exhibit at Omaha's Henry Doorly Zoo and Aquarium.
The cubs, a male and a female who will be named during a zoo fundraiser Friday, were born May 22.
The cubs' parents, Pasha and Rosemary, have been at the zoo since 2012 and 2015, respectively. This isn't the pair's first offspring. The snow leopards had a cub named Victoria in 2017 who now lives at the Binder Park Zoo in Battle Creek, Michigan.
Snow leopards are listed as vulnerable by the International Union for Conversation of Nature's Red List.

Gentoo penguin chicks
Four gentoo penguin chicks were unveiled to the public in late February 2019.

The chicks range in weight from 14 to 16 pounds and will be introduced to other birds.
The Omaha zoo has 37 gentoo penguins and the four chicks. They are listed as near threatened by the International Union for Conservation of Nature's Red List.
