Point Defiance Zoo & Aquarium has welcomed a special addition to its family – newborn clouded leopard cubs. On May 12, clouded leopards Chai Li and Nah Fun gave birth to four healthy cubs. These rare and beautiful animals have quickly captured the hearts of many.

The newborn clouded leopards are a week old now. Each cub weighs between 10 and 12 ounces, about the same as a box of corn flakes. Because they are so small, they are being fed by bottle. The zoo staff is taking great care of them to ensure they grow strong and healthy.

Growing Interest

Evidently the birth of these cubs has sparked a lot of excitement. People are eager to see them and have been asking the zoo to livestream the cubs. Many have even offered to donate money to support this idea.

First Portraits

Looking Ahead
