JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Jacksonville Zoo and Gardens welcomed two Amur leopard cubs last month. The cubs were born Nov. 16.

"We are very proud of our leopards and our animal care team who have successfully brought two more of these extremely rare cats into the world," said Dan Maloney, deputy director of conservation and education of Jacksonville Zoo and Gardens.

Zoo staff will have their first interaction with the cubs Tuesday during the cubs' primary medical exams.
