The birth of two snow leopards in Cumbria is a 'first for the North of England', says the Lakeland Wildlife Oasis.
Snow leopards are endangered and their population numbers are decreasing. It's said that protecting wild snow leopards is particularly difficult as they are shy creatures that live in harsh habitats. They also are spread across 12 countries, some of which are divided by war.
The cubs are part of an international breeding program and there is a chance that the cubs may be sent to host countries to re-establish the snow leopard population.
As is clear in the video, snow leopards are sensitive mothers. Staff have had to exercise particular caution to not disturb the mother, Tara.
Watch: Tara protects new-born cubs
In a few weeks the cubs will be more active and as they venture outside, visitors will be able to watch the cubs explore with their surroundings.
