If baby leopards aren’t cute enough for you, how about baby clouded leopards born on Valentine’s Day?! At birth, these cubs each weighed just over a half pound. For thirty years, the Zoo has pioneered the science of breeding clouded leopards, and successfully tackled the many challenges involved in saving this endangered species listed as “vulnerable to extinction”. Check out the Zoo’s flickr page for more photos. There’s also a clouded leopard web cam!
