Zoo keepers introduced cubs Harry and Elsie to their father, Boris, last week. The cubs were just 12-weeks old and weighed about 12-and a half pounds at the time. Curator Dave Wood says the older the cubs get, the less protective their mom, Tasha, becomes. All four cats are now on display together. Snow leopards are one of only a few species of big cats in which fathers can be introduced into the family picture without serious threat of harm to their cubs.
