The Fort Worth Zoo has adopted two more cats — well, they're technically mountain lions.

Two 6-month-old male mountain lion cubs — brothers named Leonard and Sheldon — are now on display at the zoo's Texas Wild exhibit.

The cubs were rescued in California after residents said the pair was seen without a mother. A California Department of Fish and Wildlife biologist  was brought in to check on the cubs before it was decided that the Fort Worth Zoo would be a good adoptive home.

Already, the zoo said the 30-pound cubs have gotten used to their new home, pouncing on one another and climbing trees in their exhibit area.

Visitors can see the cubs starting Thursday.
