The first snow leopard to be born at Dudley Zoo has gone on show to the public.
Zoo officials do not yet know the sex of Cub X, which was born eight weeks ago, as it has had no human contact to guard against any chance of infection.
Keeper Richard Brown told BBC Midlands Today reporter Sarah Falkland he was very pleased with the cub's progress and said it was "very confident" considering its young age.
