A litter of four new clouded leopard cubs were born on May 12, at the Point Defiance Zoo and Aquarium in Tacoma, Washington. Their mother, Chai Li, has not been feeding them, so they are monitored and fed round-the-clock by the zoo staff. They don’t yet know how many males and females there are, but they had their portraits taken at one week. See the pictures at Facebook and a bonus video at YouTube.
Clouded leopards, which are not closely related to leopards, range from the Himalayas through Southeast Asia. They are the smallest of the big cats. There are around 10,000 left in the wild, and they are classified as vulnerable. -via Buzzfeed
