Snow Leopard Cub Takes A Tumble From A Height

It is difficult enough to jump up those rocks for the newborn snow leopard cubs without your sister keep throwing you off again.
The snow leopard twins are playing on the rocks with one of them keep pushing the other one back to the bottom. One fall in partially looks quite scary as the cub tumbles from a height.
The one that pushed the other one off looked quite concerned as well, but there was nothing to worry about as the thrown off cub just got back up again and carried on climbing the rocks, before a few more tumbles.
The two twins, both female were born in April 2017. Twycross zoo in England had them off show until now to settle into the world. This is the third pair for mum Irma and dad Suou.
They are an important part of the international breeding programme. Snow leopards are classified by IUCN as Endangered.
