After an online public vote, the Assiniboine Park Zoo‘s snow leopard cubs have names.
The two male cubs were born at the zoo in May and are typically found in the wild in Asia and Russia.
Nearly 3,000 votes were cast and the winners were Kaash with 1,272 votes and Arka with 1,779 votes.
The zoo holds a snow leopard chat daily at 10:30 a.m. in the Snow Leopard Enclosure, where animal care professionals share information about the cubs and their parents, Batu and Akar, and other interesting facts about the species.
The zoo is open daily from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
