These clouded leopard cubs will steal your heart! (video)

Published on May 5, 2016
Three rare clouded leopard cubs, two males and a female, were born Wednesday, March 30. The cubs are healthy and receiving round-the-clock care from keepers, who feed them five times a day.

Clouded leopards, named for their thundercloud markings, are so shy and elusive that scientists don't have an accurate estimate of their wild population. Fewer than 100 live in accredited North American zoos.

Point Defiance Zoo & Aquarium is a recognized global leader in Clouded leopard conservation. Grants from the Dr. Holly Reed Wildlife Conservation Fund support clouded leopard research, education and anti-poaching work in Southeast Asia. Learn more at www.pdza.org.
