Chattanooga Zoo welcomes snow leopard cub

CHATTANOOGA (WRCB) – The Chattanooga Zoo has announced the birth of a female endangered snow leopard.

The cub was born during the snow storm on January 10 to parents Kasmir and Czar.

Zoo officials say 40% of cubs do not survive the birthing process, which is why they held off on announcing the birth of the cub until now.

When full grown, the cub will weigh between 60 and 120 pounds.

The cub will go on display at the Chattanooga Zoo in late February. The cub currently doesn't have a name, but zoo officials say a contest will be held to name the come soon.
