AKRON, OH (CNN) - A pair of rare snow leopard cubs has been born at the Akron Zoo for the second time.

The cubs, one male and one female, were born April 14. They are being kept indoors to bond with their mother.

They are expected to be placed on exhibit at the end of June or in early July.

Snow leopards are an endangered species. A contest will be held in the coming weeks to name them.
