DENVER - It may be scorching hot outside, but the Denver Zoo spotted something wintery in its midst.

An endangered snow leopard was born on May 13. They named her Misha.

Guests aren't able to see Misha yet because she is still in her den bonding with her mom.

Misha's mom Natasha was born at Wisconsin's Racine Zoo in 2001 and came to the Denver Zoo in 2002. Himal was born at Utah's Hogle Zoo in May 2009 and arrived at the Denver Zoo in May 2010.

Although this is Himal's first cub, Natasha is an experienced mother - having given birth to cubs in 2005, 2007 and 2008.
