The six-month-old red panda cubs at Lincoln Park Zoo got to play in the snow for the first time Wednesday.

Clark and Addison were born on June 26 and made their public debut on Oct. 22, after spending several weeks in private with their mother, Leafa.

The cubs are growing fast. On Wednesday, they showed off their climbing skills at their outdoor exhibit, which was covered in snow.

The red pandas are native to the Himalayan Mountains. Despite the name, they are not related to the black and white pandas in China.

Guests can see the red panda cubs at the Kolver Lion House, which is open from 10 a.m. - 5 p.m. daily.
