Rare snow leopard triplets have made their first public appearance at Basel Zoo in northwestern Switzerland.
The zoo is showing off the eight-week-old cubs Wednesday alongside their mother, Mayhan and father, Pator.
The pair were matched mid-January through a preservation program run by the European Association of Zoos and Aquaria.
Snow leopards are an endangered species and only 4,000-6,000 are believed to still live in the wild.
They are mainly found in the mountains of Central Asia and the Himalayas.
