    Kids and pups weren't the only ones who had fun during Friday's snow day -- a couple of snow leopard cubs played in the powder at the Central Park Zoo.

    The cubs, born at the zoo this summer, were caught on camera roughhousing after about 6 1/2 inches of fluffy snow covered the ground in their enclosure. The cubs were the first snow leopards ever born at the zoo.

    Snow leopards have been at the Central Park Zoo since 2009, the zoo says. The big cats are among the the world's most endangered animals, with only 3,500 and 6,500 snow leopards remaining in the wild.
