APPLE VALLEY, Minn. (WCCO) — Get ready to be overwhelmed with cuteness. Two extremely rare, critically endangered cats are now on display at the Minnesota Zoo.

A male and female Amur leopard cub will go on display for the first time Wednesday morning.

The cubs were born on May 29 and have spent the last several months nursing, bonding with their mom and building up strength. This will be their first time on exhibit, so visitors should know they may be a little shy.

Amur leopards are part of a Species Survival Plan through the Association of Zoos and Aquariums.
