AKRON, Ohio — Snowy owl parents, Frost and Cirrus, welcomed two owlets at the Akron Zoo. The owlets made their arrival into the world Sunday, July 31 and Wednesday, Aug 3.

This is the first time snowy owls have been born at the Akron Zoo.

The gender of the baby owls has yet to be determined but both are doing well. The zoo keepers are giving their parents Frost and Cirrus privacy by placing barricades in front of the snowy owl habitat so they can properly care for their new owlets.

We look forward to finding out the fun names the zoo will choose for these adorable owlets.
