THE BRONX - The Bronx Zoo has debuted its newest addition, a snow leopard cub.

The cub was fathered by Leo, the snow leopard who became famous when he was rescued from the high mountains of northern Pakistan before making New York City his home in 2006.

The baby doesn't have a name yet, but he's been getting plenty of exercise running around the zoo's exhibit.

The Bronx Zoo has had more than 70 snow leopard births, which is more than any other zoo in North America.
