Dozens of parents and children filed excitedly behind a glass enclosure at the San Francisco Zoo on Thursday to watch two snow leopard cubs discover the world outside their den — for the first time since they were born nine weeks ago.
Leading up to the noon reveal, toddlers pressed their palms and noses against the glass enclosure, looking for any signs of movement from the cubs among the grassy landscape.
“Where are the kitties?” one child asked.
Other children quietly chanted “kitty” under their breath in anticipation, lowering their voices only after zoo staff members pressed their index fingers against their lips.
