(Wichita, Kan.) —

The KWCH Wild Cam is back this summer with more baby animals from Tanganyika.

The 24-hour-a-day live stream shows babies in the nursery and will rotate animals as the babies grow up or leave to live at a zoo.

Right now you can see a baby white tiger. He was one of two born born at Tanganyika this year. He was born from the same parents as last year's white tigers on Wild Cam.

You will also see a six-week-old baby snow leopard later this summer. This male cat weighs about five pounds and is still on a milk formula, according Matt Fouts, the Assistant Director at Tanganyika.  The leopard will begin to transition to solid food soon.

There have been seven snow leopards born at Tanganyika this year, along with two baby white tigers and a honey badger. Tanganyika is the largest breeder of snow leopards in the United States. Jack Hanna, the Director Emeritus of the Columbus Zoo, has two of Tanganyika's snow leopards born this year.

Snow leopards are an endangered species and Fouts says that Tanganyika and other breeders around the US are working to keep the species alive.
