These adorable snow leopards are set to knock spots off other attractions at Wuppertal Zoo in Germany after getting to grips with their public for the first time.
The youngsters - now three months old - are being raised by hand by keeper Nadine Hess after the tragic death of mum Gulcha six weeks ago.
As the cubs' deputy mum, Nadine makes sure the trio get regular cuddles and play sessions every day as they learn to socialise with each other.
But the youngsters - Aziza, Aditi and Aruna - are already growing up so fast on a diet of raw minced meat that Nadine will soon have to step back.
"They are already quite aggressive. It's still just playing to them, but having a 22 pound animal jumping on your back is quite a challenge," she explained.
Zoo curator Andre Stadler aded: "They need to grow up as far away from people as possible. There should be no human dependencies."
The endangered big cats - with piercing pale blue eyes - are endangered in the wild in Asia, with less 7,000 living across India, China, Russia and Pakistan.
