Your morning adorable: Amur leopard cub debuts in German zoo

The recent birth of an Amur leopard cub at the Serengeti Park in Hodenhagen, Germany, is all the reason we need to celebrate on a Monday morning.  Amur leopards are critically endangered; it's believed that there are fewer than 40 of them left in the wild (they're native to eastern Russia), with an additional few hundred in zoos.  

The cub, an as-yet-unnamed female who's now a month old, recently made her first public appearance at the zoo.  See more photos of her after the jump!
