The South Florida zoo recently announced the birth of two highly endangered clouded leopard kittens by posting a series of photos online.
We are going through some testing times nowadays. Hence, any news that remotely brings smile on our faces is good news.
One such news I came across the other day is birth of two highly endangered clouded leopard kittens in the South Florida zoo recently. The babies are so darn cute, I cannot get enough of them.
The baby boy and baby girl came into this world on February 11. However, they were in seclusion in a den with their mother, Serai. This was done in order to keep the little babies from any kind of external stress.
Since both the babies have been vaccinated and checked, they are finally ready to make an appearance in front of the world.
The unnamed leopard babies were introduced to the world via a twitter post last week.
The tweet reads, “Zoo Miami is excited to announce the successful births of the highly endangered clouded leopards.”

Zoo’s communications director, Ron Magill, in a separate press release, said,
“Amid all of the stressful news that we are all dealing with, I hope that this can bring a smile to some of your faces! Hopefully, once this pandemic has run its course, the public will be able to return to the zoo to personally see these precious new additions!”
The Clouded leopards are native to forests within Southern China, Taiwan and Malaysia, and are considered highly endangered. They were marked as an endangered species thanks to hunting, as their attractive pelts actually have ceremonial value in many cultures.
