New photos and video of clouded leopard cubs at 2 months

Aug 29, 2011

Now a little over two months after their birth, Point Defiance Zoo and Aquarium's two clouded leopard cubs, named Taji and Sumalee, are more active than ever, if the new photos released are anything to go by. (More photos inside.)

The cubs appear to be healthy and doing well. They are housed in the cub den at the newly-opened Cats of the Canopy exhibit and are on display every day from 8:30 AM to 6:00 PM with different feeding times throughout the day. 

The mother clouded leopard, Chai Li,  gave birth to the litter of two cubs June 14. Clouded leopards are endangered species, and the Point Defiance Zoo is one of only three zoos in the country to breed clouded leopard cubs. The birth of the cubs in June brought the total number of cubs born this year in the United States to eight.
