BRONX (WABC) -- New video from the Bronx Zoo shows snow leopards enjoying the snow.
The zoo says it was the cubs' first experience in the snow.
They have been exploring, and climbing onto higher areas of their habitats.
The snow leopards have large padded feet that act as "natural snow shoes" and their thick wooly tails help them balance and keep warm.
The cubs have been practicing their hunting and jumping skills.
The zoo says it has a long history of conservation work with snow leopards.
"Our efforts have produced 80 cubs, helping to establish a sustainable population in North American zoos. Our scientists in the field also work to study & protect them in the wild," the zoo said on X.
Snow leopards naturally live in high elevations in the mountains of central Asia which is described as having some of the harshest conditions on the planet.
